Office Lens applies additional corrections to the photos it takes. Mainly it tries to recognise the subject (e.g. a document) and crop the image to it. This means you'll end up with a neatly trimmed and aligned image even if you took the photo at an angle. You can see a real-time preview of exactly what the resulting image is going to include on your phone ...
Note: The answer below assumes you're using the Nokia Camera app. Most of it should also apply to the regular Camera app, except the part about manual focus controls.
Tapping on the screen selects that point of the scene for automatic focus and exposure adjustment - the camera app will make sure the point you tapped is in focus and properly exposed (i.e. ...
I was pleasantly surprised to discover that if I connect my phone via USB to my computer, then one of the options that comes up is to "Import pictures and videos using Windows Live Photo Gallery" which I have installed on my computer.
This gives you various options for the Folder name, including:
Date Imported + Name
Date Taken + Name
Date Taken Range + ...
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.

If you don't want to have it on OneDrive you will need to upload it with a Twitter app which will then use TwitPic or something else. The file needs to be somewhere (on the web) if you want to show it. The default way for Windows Phone is to send it to your OneDrive account.
Here is how you can download multiple photos at once:
On your phone open IE, go to https://onedrive.live.com and log in to your OneDrive account.
At the bottom click the "PC site" link to get the full desktop version.
Open the folder that contains the photos you want to download.
Then go to "Folder options" and select "Download folder".
Now the file will ...
Each album in the hub corresponds to
a folder in the Pictures folder (when you connect it to a computer)
a "Pictures" folder on OneDrive (mark as Pictures in a folder's properties)
a Facebook album
You can delete any folder which isn't the Camera roll, a OneDrive folder or Facebook album by long pressing on it and tapping delete.
The camera roll must be ...
Unfortunately there is no way to automatically re-upload all images in best quality. You could either manually upload the old photos through the OneDrive app on your phone or go the USB->PC->OneDrive way. Been there...
I'm not quite sure what exactly is creating your Documents & Photos folders, but it is not the "Camera roll bonus". This bonus was added to your account when the automatic upload was active once and it is by design that this wont disappear after you deactivate it.
This bonus storage will disappear by January 31st 2016 if you do not object.
Also, this ...
SMS (Short Message Service) doesn't support pictures or other similar content, only plain text. Perhaps you're referring to MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service) instead?
In order to send MMS messages, you need to do two things:
Configure the MMS APN (Access Point Name) settings. You can do this manually in:
Windows Phone 8: Settings → Mobile network + ...
Zip the photos into one .7z archive using 8-zip and send the archive as attachment....wp might not resize in this case...
You may also try renaming it to .xyz ,so that wp may not try to compress it like it does for photos
I don't know if I really understand but:
In the Pictures Hub just below "Camera Roll, Albums, etc..." you can se a "upload(s) waiting" message.
Tap it and all pictures waiting for upload will show.
Long press an hit cancel. I think you can't do multiple actions here. Need to be one by one.
The Pictures Hub uses the Panorama control. According to MSDN this is what developers are supposed to do to set the background in their apps --
In this section, you will apply an image to the Panorama control. For
this topic, a sample image of samplePhoto.jpg is used. Use a properly
sized image in your app. Background images should be between 480 x ...
As you already be suspecting, that is not possible. The operating system is trying to protect people from themselves and do not allow people who may not have a good data plan chew through it too quickly.
After upgrading to Windows Phone 8.1 I noticed the storage usage had moved to "Other" from photos. Turns out the Mac app for windows can't display or delete DNG files even though it can import them. The phone also doesn't show DNG files in the camera roll if the associated JPG files have been removed.
Plugging the phone into a Windows 8 machine, and ...
With the latest update to the OneDrive app (version 4.2), you can now download multiple files from OneDrive to your phone. To do so, follow these steps:
Open the OneDrive app
Navigate to the folder where the files you want to download are located
Tap the "select" icon in the app bar
Tap on each of the files you want to download to mark them
Tap the "...
The reason you see this happens is because your phone only syncs your pictures to OneDrive when it takes them. Once you take a picture it is saved locally. At the phone's earliest convenience, it will upload the file to OneDrive. Changes to your pictures in OneDrive do not sync back to your phone.
Also if you delete a photo from your phone, the copy in ...
Actually there is a slight problem with sharing the Screenshots directly through the "Share" option in Photos app.You can not share them directly.For other types photos you can,but not for the Screenshots.Now if you still want to share them,You are given only one choice.
open the whatsapp and then send that photo from within the whatapp app.
You can share multiple photos in WhatsApp as follows:

Tap the "attach" icon
In "Attach media", tap "Photo" and select the album where the photos are
Tap "select" at the bottom to mark the photos which you want to share
Note: You can share a maximum of 10 photos at once).
I actually just reset my phone and tried this. As far as I can tell, there is no way to load your previous images. I think storing your panoramas on photosynth.net (an option in the app) could perhaps prevent this from happening in the future.
The only thing I can think of is to get a (usb) card reader and try to run the recovery tool then - this worked for me. It won't work connecting your phone directly, though.
In the meantime I'd recommend removing the SD card from your phone to prevent your photos from being overwritten with different data.
