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.

        I don't know where Microsoft gets ask these ideas from... They have user voice to look at but they are doing the opposite... I think this site is a room they created for us to blabber ask or whinings but their office it's actually in the other building, far from this room so that they will not actually hear our shouts hahaha

        The ****** photos app always gets me "gosh did i take this photo??? Oh it was saved from 9gag, i always forget... It's MIXED"

        Bring back the hubs, and tight UI integration. Bring back to the stylised and beautiful UI that attracted me to this phone since WP7. The ideas developed and enhanced since Zune have now been watered down to an unacceptable shadow of their former design innovation and intent. If you want people to stay with WP you had been take a look at where it's headed because it appears to be loosing its way fast. Bring back the hub paradigm in all its glory please!

        The photo hub in WP 8.1 is customizable, and you can set your own custom photo as a background.

        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.
