I was told that when exporting pics, they will/should go to the same folder I imported them from. I import 5 pics from my Tenn Vacation Folder, clean them up in LR, and export them saying same folder, and create a LR subfolder, and the pics end up in a "new"folder called 2014 and the the LR folder in another folder with the month and date I took the original pic.
This is a mess as if I do not know when I took a pic, it is hard to find it. My guess is a setting is off somewhere. Any ideas?
Exported images will go to wherever you tell them to go in the export dialogue. One of your destination options is to export to the same folder as the original. Choose that option, and then don't specify a subfolder. Then the exported images will be in the same folder with the originals. You can also choose to have them added to the catalog, and you won't have the import them.
