If your phone or tablet is set to upload your camera roll to OneDrive, you don't need to also add those photos and videos to OneDrive from your PC. If you do, you'll have two copies in different folders.
All the photos and videos from the device that's currently connected will be added. New photos and videos will also be automatically added from removable devices you connect to in the future. Photos include these common image formats:
Yes, they'll just import to a different place on your PC, the OneDrive/Pictures/Camera imports folder. You can get there in File Explorer by opening OneDrive in the left pane. Because your photos and videos are imported to your PC and not just uploaded to your OneDrive storage, you can still work with them when you're offline. The programs you use to edit photos and videos might not initially display files in your OneDrive folder, so you might need to follow the steps in those programs to include this folder.

Nowadays, we actively depend on our smartphones to take photos and videos of our daily lives. However, sharing these memories with other people can sometimes be inconvenient, especially when sharing a large number of media at the same time. Fortunately, you can zip photos and videos on recent iPhones, allowing you to compress these files and store them as a single zip file, which the recipient can then decompress. The process works similarly on the latest iPads, too. So whether you've got an iPhone 14 Pro Max or a different iDevice, the steps are pretty much the same. Here's how to compress photos and videos on iOS and iPadOS.
As you can see, creating a zip file for photos and videos on an iPhone or iPad is very straightforward. The process is similar if you're trying to compress other file types, too. Not only will this makes it easier to organize and send large file batches, but in some cases, it can also decrease the storage space consumed by these files when compared to their individual, uncompressed sizes.
