Pictures are quietly discarded if ~/Pictures doesn't exist

From my tests it appears that pictures are quietly discarded if the ~/Pictures folder doesn't exist. I think what the app should do is 1. attempt to create the folder, and 2. if that fails, show an actual error instead of just kinda pretending it worked :-D

Hardcoding ~/Pictures is a problem, because the folder name could be different. I think it would be better to use g-get-user-special-dir from glib:

I've pushed a fix that uses g_get_user_special_dir to the "pictures-fix" branch on my fork.

Merged that change, thanks Benjamin :)
