Under Windows, any current version.

In povray.imi, you need something like this :
Library_Path="C:\Users\<user>\POV Images"

You can have any number of «Library_Path», and they'll be explored in order.

And, in pvengine.ini, lines like this :
[Permitted Input Paths]
1=%INSTALLDIR%
2=%PROFILEDIR%
3=%FONTDIR%
4="C:\Users\<user>\POV Images"

The first 3 lines shoupd already be present. Don't change them.
The paths here must match those added in povray.ini.

The paths in povray.ini tell where to look.
The paths in pvengine.ini tell where you are allowed to look.
