Windows 7: to change default photo download location

It's been so long since I've used Picture It, I really don't remember, but I think on the file tab there should be an import selection which will allow you to go to wherever the photos are and import them. Like I said, it's been a long time, but it is a good program.

You can change your windows auto photo/video import folder by doing the following.

1) Start->run->type regedit and hit enter
2) In regedit go to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Photo Acquisition" and edit all the sub/child entries. For each sub/chile entry where ever you see a folder name, edit it to be your import file location or pattern.
3) Repeat(as in step 2) the same process for all users in your machine by editing "HKEY_USERS\<some long value>\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Photo Acquisition" and all its sub elements.
4) Close regedit and Restart your machine.
5) Try auto importing new pictures from your camara and it should go to the directory you have specified in the registry(step 2).
