    Saving paintings

    I know this is trivial, but I wanted to save a painting to my desktop and now it seems it goes there everytime automatically. How do I get it to save where it did originally?

    When you go to File/Save As - etc. you can choose to save in any folder.

    June.

    Oh God of homeless things, look down
    And try to ease the way
    Of all the little weary paws
    That walk the world
    today.

    On my PC they are saved by default to "User/MyUserName/Documents/ArtRage Paintings"

    If yours aren't there you can bring up the file explorer and search for one of your paintings by name. I would search the whole C: drive. It may take a while depending on the speed of your computer.

    Just a guess, but have you got your file extensions showing? Are you looking for paintings saved as .ptg (ArtRage) or exported as .jpg?

    Show or hide file name extensions

    You mention saving a file (first post) AND opening a file (second) - 2 different things, so I'm not sure exactly what you're asking? You can save your paintings anywhere, you have the choice, so it's hard to suggest a file path where you can look since it's a personal thing where you put them.
