    Dear community, dear MS support,


    when editing a photo in Microsoft Photos "Microsoft Fotos" in German, no matter the original resolution of the original graphic file - Microsoft Photos always saves a highly compressed JPG with much lower quality than the original file. This renders the otherwise useful features of Microsoft Photos useless, and does not allow for high-quality output. e.g. for a personal video, or for printing a postcard


    This can be fixed relatively easy by implementing a quality setting/slider in a future version of Microsoft Photos. e.g. for adjusting the JPG compression slider: 75% = OK quality, 85 = good quality, 95 = very good quality.

    This report concerns the most up-to-date Windows Photos version 2020.20110.11001.0, available in Windows 10 20H2.

    Thanks for listening. Until a fix is available, a third party software will be used by me and probably most other affected users who are interested in keeping their original HD-quality :-


    Regards, Jon.

  3. Saving Photos not working in Microsoft Photos program

    For ages I have been using Microsoft Photos but have suddenly encountered a problem.

    When working on a photo I am given the option 'Save a Copy'

    Previously this takes me to a page where I have to find the actual folder for the pictures I'm working on and then I'm given a slot to save the picture there with a name.

    But suddenly that 'Save a copy' button simply saves a copy of the photo with no option to title it. I have to go to the folder and select rename.

    I noticed that there is a drop down menu where I see 'Save a copy' which has the option 'save' but this is greyed out.

    When I go to my laptop which also has Microsoft Photos installed there is no problem and I can save to a selected folder and name the photo.

    Something has changed - please help
