just use the file name and dont include a path
eg:
Image.save("picture.jpg")
instead of
Image.save("c:\windows\files\picture.jpg")

You can use Application.StartupPath():
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.application.startuppath.aspx

    "Gets the path for the executable file that started the application, not including the executable name."

*Though on Vista and higher, this will probably require elevated permissions.  It's usually a better idea to use the Environment.SpecialFolder Enumeration:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.environment.specialfolder.aspx

    ApplicationData --> The directory that serves as a common repository for application-specific data for the current roaming user.  A roaming user works on more than one computer on a network. A roaming user's profile is kept on a server on the network and is loaded onto a system when the user logs on.

See Environment.GetFolderPath():

Get The base location

 Dim base As String = AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory

 Dim Filename as string="test.jpeg"

   base = base + Filename   ---> (contain entire filename )

Sample Code to save image

protected void btnSubmit_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
//Get Filename from fileupload control
string filename = Path.GetFileName(fileuploadimages.PostedFile.FileName);

//Save images into Images folder

fileuploadimages.SaveAs(Server.MapPath("Images/"+filename));
                                           or
fileuploadimages.SaveAs((base ));
