Noob Desktop / Screensaver question

Hey everyone, I am using core 6 on my laptop. Under the screensavers selections I see an option called "Pictures folder" where is the default pictures folder? Can I change it? Sory for such a noob question.

it is the folder "Pictures" in your home directory. Yes, you can change that. From FedoraForums:

"You can specify you're own folder by adding a line
imageDirectory: <path/to/folder>

at the end of ~/.xscreensaver"
