I know this is such a basic question, hence I cannot find similar question to this.

I've set up Render Output file in Preferences and Clicked Save Preferences:

enter image description here

But after rendering nothing appears in the folder. Why?

I've found this other question, for blender 2.7, but my Render Panel has no option to put a Render Output Path:

As Answer from this post suggests:

How can I change the default render directory to a relative directory?

enter image description here

But my Render Panel does not have that option:

enter image description here Plus:

I'd like to set the width and height of my rendered image to: 1200 * 628 (for a Facebook PPL). How do I do that so it is the default size output?

UPDATE 1

Still cannot see any image in my path:

I've change the path, should I do something else?

  • $\begingroup$ Perhaps you have your path wrong, according to me a path never has // at start! $\endgroup$ – Yash Mar 24 at 13:48

    $\begingroup$ If you render only one frame, it will not be saved directly to the folder you have to it manually! $\endgroup$ – Yash Mar 24 at 14:32

    $\begingroup$ You can save it by clicking on Image option located at the left of Render result drop down and click Save as! $\endgroup$ – Yash Mar 24 at 14:39

    $\begingroup$ Could you edit you answer so it is clear that besides putting the right path, if you render only one image you still need to save it manually? (for future readers). $\endgroup$ – user3352567 Mar 24 at 14:49

    $\begingroup$ @Yash // symbols at the start of the path usually means relative location, in case of Blender output path it is treated as "put render output to wherever project file is saved to" $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak Mar 24 at 16:02

If you are Rendering single image Image using the Render> Render Image menu or f12, Blender will not save the image automatically.

enter image description here

You have to save it manually, by clicking Image option located at the left of Render Result dropdown and select Save as (or press Shift+s while in the image editor).

enter image description here

A new window will open where you can choose where to save the file.

If you want to save the image automatically you can render as animation.

Set the frame range to a single frame.

enter image description here

Then render using the Render animation option or F12.

Note that 2.8 has different panel for output.

Dimensions and frame range can be set there as well.

    $\begingroup$ @Yash I just added images for clarity, the main answer is at the top. It is still your answer, and you deserve the credit and reputation. You can always roll it back or re-edit if you disagree with the edits, or find them unheplful. : ) $\endgroup$ – cegaton Mar 24 at 16:13
  • $\begingroup$ @cegaton I was not able to add images because my Blender was not with me, anyways, thanks for the edit ;) $\endgroup$ – Yash Mar 24 at 16:16
