    I have a RadEditor in my page, and have set a directory in App_Data to house my sample images.  I have set it up like this:

    <ImageManager DeletePaths="~/App_Data/Classified/Images"
    ViewPaths="~/App_Data/Classified/Images" UploadPaths="~/App_Data/Classified/Images" />

    I added a few PNG images to the Images folder.  When I open the Image Manager - the thumbnail images show as broken images.  But then when I use the Image Editor the images work in there.  I can also change to the list view and see the file sizes, etc.  I am new to this part of the control, what am I doing wrong?  

    UPDATE: Added screenshots

    Ah - figured it out.

    Never use the App_Data folder for this - it does not work right...  Which means you need to setup another folder with read/write permissions to house the images - then all works as expected.
