Get to your Camera Roll from anywhere

To see only the photos taken with your phone, swipe over to Folders, then select Pictures > Camera Roll.

Make sure your Camera Roll photos are automatically uploaded to OneDrive so they're available to you from your PC and other devices too. In the Photos app, select See more > Settings > Manage OneDrive upload settings. This will open the OneDrive app to Camera upload settings. Make sure that this is set to On.

Help the app find more photos

If photos from your PC or other devices aren’t already on OneDrive, here’s how to add them.

On a PC running Windows 8.1 or Windows 10, open File Explorer, then drag the Pictures folder from This PC to OneDrive.

On iOS, Mac OSX, or Android, install the app and then add your photos from that device to OneDrive.
