    Currently I have a Lumia 520 running WP 8.1 but is only my spare phone till I decide what to buy next. Anyway,I've noticed on 8.1 DE you still cannot upload photos via IE11. What I want to know is will this change in the final release?? I think it's very poor of MS not to implement such a simple feature on a smartphone OS. Thanks

    Where exactly are you facing issues? I've been uploading images using IE11 ever since I installed the 8.1 dev preview. I worked fine for me on Facebook, Box and many other sites too.

    Where are you trying to upload photos in IE? It very much depends on the website's support as much as WP. I've only tried using Flickr.com and Photobucket.com and in both cases, the picker works perfectly well, going straight to my pictures hub to select photos.

    Like I've already said, Facebook is working fine here. At least in desktop view. Haven't tried mobile view as I pretty much hate it. :)

    Ah ok that's where I am going wrong the mobile view doesn't. That's still annoying though. Sorry for starting a thread which was my mistake. Thanks

    Just tried it and it's so poorly implemented. When you goto upload a photo you cannot see the image it's just a stupid text list of images.

    Wait a minute. After tapping the upload button on the website, you're automatically navigated to the file picker, which offers three choices. What you need to pick there is "photos" or similar. This will bring up the thumbnail view you're used to from the pictures hub (app). No files names, no nothing. Just thumbnail images.

    It's not what I got
    Because you picked the wrong option, no doubt. From top to bottom it's Photos, OneDrive, Phone. You need to go with the first one.
