Can’t find Skype photos captured on Skype on my MacBook Air

I have OS X 10.9.1. I captured a photo using Skype (skype 6.12) and I cannot find the folder holding my images.

I’ve tried looking for the answer on this website but couldn’t find it.


OK, I did the search and found it in most peculiar place one can think of.

This is on my MBA with 10.9.2.

~/Library/Containers/ Pictures

You will find two types of image files there — TIFF (thumbnail) and standard .png

The .tiff are converted by Skype to a profile pictures, the .png are the originals.

Extra information:

If you need frequent access to that folder but do not want to remember its complicated location

  1. Right click on the folder (Recent Pictures)

  2. Click on Make Alias

  3. Drag the Alias folder to your desktop (you can rename it to what you like)
