I strive for a clean, clear data storage on my system. When I use the Adobe LightRoom & Photoshop plug-ins the files are placed in: Driveletter:\My Picures\{Qimage}..... and then the hassle starts.

There are two locations;

a: .. \[Qimage)\Export\date&time stamped folders + [LR] or [PS]

b: .. \Plugins\Export\date&time stamped folders + [LR] or [PS]

I want to solve this redundancy. So ONE folder, with optional sub-folders. And secondly, shorten the location path to: Driveletter:\{Qimage}\Folder-name\date&time stamped folders + [LR] or [PS].

Can someone help me out, where is the preference? (I'm new to Qimage)

with regards, Martin

Qimage has an application data folder and you can choose the location of that folder.  Under that folder will be folders that store things like saved setups, thumbs, cache, plugins, exports, etc.  So you can move that overall appliation data folder: use the Utilities, Migrate/Copy option from the top menu in Qimage and it'll walk you through it.

If you have two folders as it seems you do, that means that at some point (possibly during install where it asks you where you want your application data folder), it was changed.  So you have an "old" one and a "current" one.  But Qimage only uses one location, but you can't pick subfolders separately under that overall application data folder.

Thank you Mike,

With the help of your tip, I have been able to clear my folder hierarchy. But there is still a small problem. The results of a 'plug-in action' are deeply hidden in the folder hierarchy.

Driveletter:\My Pictures\{Qimage}\Plugins\Export\date stamped folders.

I would like it to be: Driveletter:\My Pictures\{Qimage}\Export\date stamped folders. That saves a lot of scrolling. Or is it possible in one way or another to mark: Driveletter: \ My Picures \ {Qimage} \ Plugins \ Export \ as 'Favorite'?

Qimage needs the folders under it's application data folder in that hierarchy.  The change you propose only brings it up one level from where it is.  But yes, you can add a favorite for that folder.  In File Explorer, go to the plugins folder where the exports are stored and then right click on the "Quick access" link on the left side of File Explorer and select "Pin current folder to Quick access".  If you don't see the Quick access folders, those can be displayed or turned off: check your "View" menu to activate it if it isn't activated already.

Mike

Try "Utilities", "Explore Export Folder" from the top menu in Qimage.
