With windows it's very very annoying that the save-as option does not remember last export setting and path!

please take a look to Illustrator, they got this right.

What is your setting for File Handling? By default, for documents that were already saved prior to Save As, Photoshop will default to the same location as the original file/folder.

Hi Jeffrey,
Thanks for pointing to this new option!
But it only solves halve the problem, export format settings need to be set each time you use save-as!

I am having this same problem.  When I export, it always defaults to my desktop, so EVERY TIME I export a graphic, I have to navigate through many folders to get to the save destination.  This is extremely annoying... especially when I have several iterations of the same graphic that I need to save in one spot.

This is still a problem. If I am working with a couple of existing images, all existing in the same directory, and I try to export a PNG, it ALWAYS defaults to my windows HOME directory. I NEVER use that directory and in fact do not store "work" on the OS drive at all, but this stupid thing, rather than looking at the set of images I am working with and deriving the proper folder from that, I have to manually click through the folders to where my other files ALREADY are just to save a new file there. It's annoying as hell and even if it can't be changed to behave properly, I should be able to TELL photoshop what directory I want to use as the default rather than photoshop telling ME. At least I could point it to a folder that is a lot closer to where I need to be than the damn home directory.

Very annoying. Finally upgraded to CC today and so disappointed this is the default behavior. EVERY app on my computer remembers the last save location in the file dialog by default, but not Adobe? It's like they decided to override the Mac OS default on this...
