Try C: windows \web\ wallpapers

The files may be located in "My Documents\My Pictures" or c:\windows\web\wallpaper.

The pictures are in "My Documents\My Pictures, I have now looked in c:\windows\web\wallpaper but all there is in there is the original wallpapers that come with xp no sign of the pictures

in your Wallpaper list, Copy/Paste them to a folder you create and name. Then Delete them from My Pictures/Windows/web/wallpaper

Is there anyway I can stop my pictures showing in display properties backgrounds when I add pictures to my pictures folder ?

Do all pics do this or only your camera downloads

Are you using software supplied with your camera

If you dont use the camera software when you switch camera on, a window should come up asking what program you want to download them with. Choose and make sure the destination in it is " my pics "
