Change Skype Picture Library Location. Please. Help.

Alright. So my skype used to take conversation pictures from the correct folder. The one located in appdata and what not.

 

As a result of some freak accident, it pulled images straight from my main images folder that I actually save things I download. Thinking this was just clutter it pullde from my main images folder and not the actual folder itself, I deleted them. So I lost a bunch of things I can't get back.

 

Problem being, I can't seem to change the folder it connects to. I deleted the empty folder it was on, since I deleted everything by accident, and it just went to the folder that it was contained it.

 

People say I can't change the location where skype Picture Library pulls images. Hopefully someone on here is smart enough to help me.

Skype always defaults to looking in %appdata%\skype\pictures folder for avatar pictures, but you can browse anywhere you want during the selection process

what you may not realize is that Skype takes a COPY of the picture you select, leaving the original untouched

when you have done configuring the picture you are going to use for your avatar, the original picture in the folder where you selected it from can be deleted or moved without affecting your avatar
