I just want to know why my Snagit images insist on being stored in my "Documents" folder and how can I move everything over to my "Pictures" folder or any folder of my choosing for that matter.

With Snagit 12.4.1 (Aug 2015) or later, you can change the location of the Snagit Library "datastore" file via the Editor preferences menu. By default, the Snagit Library is at: C:\Users\YOUR LOGIN\AppData\Local\TechSmith\Snagit\DataStore (in corporate environments, your admin may have pre-configured Snagit to store captures in a different location).

Note: When changing the Library location, Snagit does not migrate or move previous capture files to the new location but will start storing all new captures in that location. See more details about the Snagit Library.
