MC286779 – Updated September 28, 2021: Microsoft has updated the message to ensure it is visible to all impacted organizations. Thank you for your patience.

A set of utility tools to quickly fix and format an image on OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online will soon be available. Capabilities will include; rotate, crop (freeform crop and fixed aspect ratio crop), and flip (horizontally and vertically).

The update will also include a set of commonly used adjustments to adjust the quality of the photograph to change the look. This feature will be available as sliders for users to increase/decrease the intensity of each adjustment. Adjustments are additive to each other, and users can adjust individual slider and see the direct result on the enlarged image.

Note: Currently, only Jpeg and Jpg file are supported. The feature is going to support PNG files soon.

What you need to do to prepare:
