OneDrive users can now edit pictures after uploading them to the cloud storage service, thanks to the addition of basic photo editing features announced by Microsoft this week.

Similar to the tools found in Google Photos, the new features include standard crop options with built-in presets for images for use on social media, as well as 90-degree and incremental flip and rotate options for uploaded images.

There are also some useful new light and color adjustments. Users can adjust brightness, exposure, contrast, highlights, shadows, and color saturation, with a before / after comparison option to check your changes.

When you make changes to photos on OneDrive, you’ll have the option to save the changes as a new image or overwrite the original image. And if you accidentally overwrite your original, you can use version history to get it back. Editing photos in OneDrive is currently limited to JPEG and PNG formats.

New image editing features are now rolling out to OneDrive for Web and OneDrive for Android, with Microsoft bringing them to OneDrive for iOS later this year.
