Microsoft adds new OneDrive features
The competition to be the “one and only” in the personal cloud storage competition continues to bring us improvements and enhancements. The latest from Microsoft OneDrive are a number of nice updates for photo albums.
The thumbnails are now much larger than before. There are still some sizing quirks that need to get worked out as the small images are not always in the correct proportions.
The little slide shows on the folder tiles can now be replaced with a fixed cover photo.
This is a neat feature. The next step will likely be lager folder tiles as the present small images seem a bit outdated now.
One “feature” that I find a bit bothersome is the way OneDrive is presented differently to the owner and public visitors. Here are two views, the first as I see it when signed in, and the second as it appears to visitors. This has to do with the permission on folders and photos.
