Change Saving directory

Hi all,

After I am done changing the brightness/contrast of the images I made with the EVOS microscope, I want to save them as a PNG. However, when I use the ‘‘save as’’ option, the default saving directory is system32. How do I change the saving directory to my preferred directory?

Hi @izzywizzy,

just to understand your issue a bit better: why is it no option to select the folder while saving? As far as I know, Fiji saves the directory where the last image was saved and it is then the default directory for the next time the user wants to save an image…


Add a line similar to


to the Edit>Options>Startup dialog. In this case, the default will be the “images” folder in your home folder.


Thank you very much. This seems to work.
