Thanks for this feedback. We have started work on it. The default path will be that of the folder in which the file is located, and this will work at file level. Similar will be the case for Save for Web.

I think a user-defined option is the solution. Reading the comments, there clearly are valid use cases that differ, and any change will make someone happy. Just add a preference under File Handling & Clipboard that lets you set your default:
-same location as file
-last used folder
-set default folder (CHOOSE).
