The list of favorites is in the combo-box you get in the uncollapsed
part of the save file-chooser. You can add your favorite directories
there by opening the folder view and dragging your favorite image
folders to the left pane.
We could think about adding a way to add gimp-specific favorites
there. That would however preferably be handled by the GTK+ widget.

There used to be a spec proposing a DND enhancement called Direct Save
or XDS. I have not been able to locate that again but this is
something that the file manager handling the desktop would have to
implement. If there is a widely adopted standard for this, we will add
support for it.
