Do not change Photos Hub style in Windows Phone 8.1

Please do not remove the panorama style of the photos hub currently implemented on Windows Phone 8. This is one of the few things which distinguishes the Windows Phone platform from other OS's. The new pictures app in 8.1 is just a pivot app and is disappointedly lacking in design, compared to what we have currently. At least include an option to add a background picture.

        AGREE, e.g. Photo App at WP8 was very pretty by using a background picture. In WP8.1 the same app is boaring black and white...

        Yeah.. And I really miss the directly upload for OneDrive. Before there was the possibilty to save it with a description directly in OneDrive. And it not anymore possilbe to check the informations to the pictures as before.

        I loved the old photos hub because it felt like a photo studio on my phone. All my photo related apps were available in one place. The background was one of the features which made WP 'The most personal smartphone'. These were the little things which people liked & that is why they bought WP. But now it looks more like Android & IOS which is boring. Please be original Microsoft.

        There's a few things that I dislike about wp8.1. The updates until now have been great and welcomed. The key features that attracted me to WP was the deep integration with other services. The new picture hub is horrible I loved the the way all my photos from FB and OneDrive appeared in the hub. I love the podcast hub but it should be in the Xbox music hub. I'm unable to check in the me hub, I really dislike opening other apps to check in. Windows phone was a efficient OS this update is a step backwards, please add back some of the features that were lost or wp8.1 will be no different than the competition by having a different app for every **** function.

        THE SIMPLE & PANORAMIC VIEW FROM PHOTOS HUB, MUSIC HUB & CONTACTS HUB + SOCIAL, AS WELL AS THE FIRST VERSION OF FACEBOOK APP; WERE THE MAIN IDENTITY IN WP 7 & 8. TOGETHER WITH A GUI BASED IN TEXTS AND WONDERFUL LIVE TILE.

        AND WAS LIKE LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT TO MEET WP.
        I LOVED INSTANTLY.

        8.1 REQUIRED TO PUT MANY FEATURES AND HAVE LOST THE BEAUTY, ORIGINALITY AND MAGIC.
        LOOKS LIKE A PHONE WITH ANDROID.

        IMPROVE, IMPROVE BUT NOT LOSE THE MAGIC, PLEASE. WP 8 BRAND A STYLE AND A TREND. DO NOT TURN OFF.

        Yes please bring back the photos hub. Windows Phone is becoming boring like IOS and Android with these static pages. Who cares if some people down't use most of it. I do. Or give us the ability to turn off features. in the Photo hub.Music + Video and peoples hub.

        The Hub feature of WP is why I love this platform.
