    After finally upgrading to Windows 10 Mobile last week I struggled to find out to enable Camera roll sync but I finally figured it out.

    On your phone go to OneDrive

    Tap on the hamburger menu then look right towards a small cog and tap that.

    Tap on Camera Upload then slide off to on.

    Voila you should be all synced up again.

    It seemed a little more straight forward in 8.1.

    Thanks, Paul. That is definitely a change in method.

    Don't forget, keep your camera roll uploading to OneDrive, it's a 15GB bonus on how much storage you have.

    Paul - This is not working for me. Do you know where (which folder?) the photos get uploaded? Much appreciate any help.

    It only syncs the Camera Roll folder, it doesn't sync Saved Pictures or Screenshots which is annoying.

    So it should upload to One Drive/Pictures/Camera Roll and you should be able to see it in the Photos app in Windows 10

    I was agonizing over this; thanks so much for the help!

    It looks like the setting only applies to pictures that are taken after camera upload is enabled.

    My Saved pictures appear to be syncing to OneDrive/Pictures/Saved pictures however my "snapped" pictures are getting saved to OneDrive/Pictures/SkyDrive camera roll (a legacy from a long, long time ago). Any idea how to change the target to OneDrive/Pictures/Camera roll to align with current convention?

    Pretty sure everyone figured out how to enable on latest build and have it working, but... how do you change to upload lower quality pictures, any ideas?
