Organize and find photos in OneDrive

After you upload photos, OneDrive helps you organize and find your photos with features such as photo search, tags, and albums.

Search photos

You can use the Search photos command to not only scan photo tags and metadata, but also extract and search text shown in photos. It now can also recognize objects in a photo, as another way to find the picture you want.

  1. On the OneDrive website, select Photos.

  2. Type something in the search box.

Edit a tag

OneDrive automatically creates tags for things it recognizes. Sometimes it makes mistakes, but you can remove or edit the tags for a photo.

  1. Select the photo.

  2. Select Edit tags.

  3. Type a new tag or select the x next to a tag to remove it. (You edit tags by adding or removing them.)

    OneDrive Edit Tags.

Create an album

You can organize your photos into an album that you can share with friends or family.

  1. Select Albums.

  2. Select New album and type a name for the album.

  3. Select photos you want to add to the album and then click Add album.
