I'm using Windows 10 10.0.10586.318 and have the option to show pics from cloud and local on a duplicate way.

I like to this because I like to delete them from from but keep them on cloud.

The problem is that looks like it is impossible to distinguish them in the Photos app.

Is there any way to know witch pic is from cloud and with one is local?


We can know that by going into file information of that image, under it, there would be details like file-name,date,size, etc. and also source destination of file.

You simply cant distinguish by looking at it.

PS: Latest threshold build is 10586.338 with bug fixes, i suggest you to upgrade.

  • My phone is fully updated. And I can't find file information in the Photos app. Long tap bring Share, Add to album, Slideshow and Delete. Jun 9 '16 at 13:32
