When using Photoshop  I have 30 photos loaded to work on, then I wish to save them to another folder, I must: Go to SAVE AS, Go to COMPUTER, then E drive, then Users, then ME, then desktop, then jpegs then the final folder I wish them to go into. How can I eliminate most of these steps so that Photoshop will want to save it in the last folder I used perhaps. Anything to shorten this process would help.

By default, Photoshop saves in the folder from where you opened the working image.

You can disable that from Preferences->File Handling-> uncheck "Save as to original folder".

This way, Photoshop will always save as in the last folder you chose.

You cannot modify the default save location but you can try modifying the places bar so that you can have easy access to the folders that you need:

I made a somewhat rude comment about the one point extra you gave to Dan to be cutesy, then changed my mind and erased it.  I'll find another question to get the 1 remaining point I need for this month.
