Photoshop: Save for Web should respect "Save As" to original folder preference

Say I'm working on two projects, I have 2 psd's open. If I do save as for web/save as.. it selects the last folder used. Which is actually useful - but sometimes it's a curse. We need an option to turn this "feature" off. To have the option of saving for web/as in the same folder as the current psd.

Let me explain why.
Project_1: Is in C:/project_1/designs
Project_2: Is in C:/project_2/designs

Say i have a psd open from both projects or i switch regularly between the two. If i want to save out a jpg from project1 and then save out a jpg from project2 - when saving a jpg for project2 it will select project1's folder because that was the last used folder. This is a HUGE pain. I have to literary jump through dozens of folders everytime i switch project.(The above was a simple file structure - but the large projects i work on have a more complicated folder tree).

It would be a HUGE HUGE HUGE help if there was an option that would turn OFF "remember the last saved folder" and instead save in the same folder as the psd...because at least even if i keep my jpgs seperate from my psd, it's faster for people to navigate from a relevant project folder than a folder in a completely different project.

I, too would like this feature. The current "last folder" behavior is useful about hanf the time, and the other half it is a nuisance. Ideally there could be two "save" buttons (one for each option; or current solution with added "save to original folder), or a radio button on the "save for web" pane allowing you to toggle this option.

Yes. We need this save in the same folder as the psd feature!

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled PHOTOSHOP: Option to "Save for Web to Original Folder".

As it stands right now, when you attempt to "Save for Web", the folder it saves to is the last folder you selected when using "Save for Web" the previous time.

I would like the option to "Save for Web" into the original folder of the PSD, by default. That's the way "Save As" works when you have "Save As to Original Folder" checked under the file handling menu.

Please, please, please, make this simple fix happen. I can't count how much time I've wasted navigating through my folders in order to save a file to the same folder that the PSD resides.

I beg you Adobe, give us this option!

Thanks for your time.
