Can't find my snapshot pictures?

Hi guys, with the newer version of skype when I take snapshots on skype I can't find the pictures unless I take another snapshot. I've gone through my whole computer looking for the snapshots and now they aren't appearing in my photo folder. I know how to take a picture but I can't seem to locate where they go once I take the picture. After taking a snapshot the photo appears then I can click photo gallery, but if I exit out I can't see the gallery again without taking another picture. someone please help me :sad:

Hold the Windows key and type r.  In the box that comes up %appdata%\Skype\Pictures <enter>.

 

That will take you to the folder where your snapshots are located.

Thank You.........that worked fine for me. And I made quick copy for myself to another folder in documents. Now I have my snapshots and can get them in the future.

You can also open the Snapshots Gallery (View -> Snapshots Gallery). Click on any picture in the Gallery and then press the Locate button in the lower right corner.
