Allow the option to change default pictures folder in PowerPoint
Unlike Word, where we can change the default pictures folder for users, there is no such option available in PowerPoint. I have noticed making changes registry also does not have any effect in latest versions of PPT. Please allow this function, as it would benefits a lot of companies to direct their users to go directly to a folder with all brand approved images from within PowerPoint (just like in Word)

PowerPoint is a visual tool that's ALL ABOUT PICTURES! I can understand this feature having not yet been implemented in 2014, but this is such an obvious omission, I hope you'll prioritize getting this feature added in as soon as possible. I live in PowerPoint for my job and it's such a pain in the backside not having this option available.
I want default "Insert Pictures" folder to be equal to the folder, where my pptx is.
E.g. if I have two files opened, "C:\somefolder\1.pptx" and "D:\otherfolder\2.pptx", when I click "Insert -> Pictures" I want it to start from "C:\somefolder" and from "D:\otherfolder" respectively. Or, even better, from "C:\somefolder\pics" and "D:\otherfolder\pics" respectively.
In Word, I'm at least able to change the default pictures folder via "File -> Options -> Advanced -> File Locations". But this still doesn't allow to set a path, relative to the file being edited. It would be nice, if there would be a "Default images location" setting, that would allow to set something like "$(FOLDER_OF_FILE_BEING_EDITED)\pics".
