A destination folder is the folder Picture Ace
saves images to. For example, C:\My Pictures
Fairly often you need to save images to different folders.
Specifying the folder every time you save an image is
very tedious work. With Picture Ace you can easily
switch between multiple destination folders.
First, we need to define destination folders. Use the
Options -> Destination Folder command to open
the Destination Folder
dialog. This dialog allows you to create, edit and delete
Note that you can also configure Picture Ace
to create various subfolders during the task execution
automatically. The subfolders are created under the
selected destination folder.
When Picture Ace is installed for the first
time, three sample destination folders are created:
Cars, Sky and Scenery. Let's add
one more destination folder. Click the Add button.
Then enter Animals in the Alias field
and C:\Photos\Animals (or any other folder) in
the Folder field. Click OK. Note that
there is no need to create the folder in Windows
Explorer, Picture Ace creates it for you
Now we have four destination folders. Note that
the selected item in the list is the current destination
folder. Let's try saving images to different destination
folders. Click OK to apply the new destination
folders options and close the dialog.
First, make sure the current destination folder is
Animals. In the tray icon menu and in the IE button
menu the current destination folder is checked.
Now save the picture below using the Ctrl +
Click combination or the IE context menu (the Save
Open the current destination folder (Animals)
and make sure the picture has been saved successfully.
There are four ways to do it: the File -> Open Destination
Folder command, the program toolbar, the tray icon
menu and the IE button menu.
The picture is there.
Below there is a picture of beautiful scenery
and we want to save it to the appropriate folder. Let's
switch the current destination folder to Scenery.
There are three ways to do it: open the Destination
Folder dialog and select the corresponding item
in the destination folder list, use the tray icon menu,
use the IE button menu.
Now save the picture below.
Picture Ace saves the picture to the Scenery
folder. Open the Scenery destination folder and
make sure the picture has been saved successfully (use
the tray icon menu or the IE button menu).
Sometimes you may need to change the destination folder
frequently and you don't know the name of the folder
beforehand. Using the Destination
Folder dialog is surely too much of a hassle. Happily,
Picture Ace offers a much simpler way: the Add
New / Edit <Alias> command in the tray icon
menu or the IE button menu.
Suppose we need to save the picture of a bird below
in the C:\Photos\Birds folder. Instead of using
the Destination Folder
dialog to create a new destination folder, we are going
to create it using the IE button menu or the tray icon
First, select Animals as the current destination
Then click the Add New / Edit Animals item,
change the Alias to Birds and the Folder to C:\Photos\Birds,
Note that this dialog allows you to do one of
three actions (we have done the first action):
- Create a new destination folder and leave the current
destination folder (Animals)
- Create a new destination folder and remove the current
- Change the folder of the current destination folder
Now we are ready to save the picture below, use the
Ctrl + Click combination or the IE context menu
(the Save Image command).
Picture Ace saves the picture to the C:\Photos\Birds
folder. Open the Birds destination folder and
make sure the picture was saved successfully (use the
tray icon menu or the IE button menu).
