    when I get a picture in Ichat and i go to save it, it auto saves into a weird folder with a name like: 26a786fb-a3cd-4b64-8894-4ed1c716e03c

    it's a different name each time i save a new pic, however, none of these folders are available in finder, and there's no directory information. Where are these hidden folders hanging out on my mac? How do I get my old pics?

    I started saving onto desktop so I could find pics, but there are still many old ones I'm looking for.

    In the iChat Preferences, under the General pane, you can specify where saved files are stored. What version are you running? It should default to the Downloads folder if you're on a recent version.
