string apppath;
            // get your personal application folder
            apppath = System.Environment.GetFolderPath(System.Environment.SpecialFolder.ApplicationData);

            // create application path
            apppath = Path.Combine( apppath, "Images" );

            // create path if it doesn't exist
            if (!Directory.Exists(apppath))

            // append configuration's filename to path string
            apppath = Path.Combine( apppath, "yourfilename.extension" );
