Believe default mode is to save to whatever folder the image came from. What does your default to?
Judy, please take the time to describe exactly what's happening for you. Be very specific.
Actually "save" does save to the folder it came from. But if you do "save as" it defaults to the last folder something was saved to. There's discussion of this on the internet. And they say check "save as to original folder" in preferences, and that's what I had checked. But it doesn't do that.
