Improvements to save dialog / default place to store taken pictures
Submitted by Raphael Groner

For "open with" and "upload", screenshot pictures are always saved to /tmp and opened with the external application from there. This should be configurable, just like for pure "save" option.
Recently ongoing discussion happened here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=669766
As far as I understand the issue till now and to not overcomplicate it then, the best way would be to modify the Save/Open/Upload dialog to have the possibilites to see the current path setting, change it if needed by a button click that shows the "Save as" dialog and updates the path. The options Open and Upload should be decoupled from the always needed save logic, so a separate only-save possibility wouldn't be needed any more. It's always possible to copy/move the picture with the file browser or choose "Save as" in an external application. Although, I think /var/cache/xfce4-screenshooter is the better choice as a default location for screenshots, it will also make it easier to cleanup, instead of having it with other possible garbage in /tmp.
Could you please then reopen the upstream bug, also due to the non-existent -p switch? Maybe clone the bug report, it is not possible / allowed to me.
There is no cli switch -p available to permanently set the default directory as stated in another bug report.
