I've saved a lot of costumes, and I'd like to know if their is anyway I can delete some of them, also, if there's an alternative to this: http://forums.champions-online.com/showthread.php?t=96689&highlight=rename+costume+tool I'd like to know where it is.
I've searched through the forum, and a lot of people say to access the Screenshots folder to do anything with the costume files, however, I have no Screenshots folder in my Champions Online -> Live folder.
So. I have no idea what to do.

The folder should be there. In the Live folder, there should be several folders (Localdata, logs, cache, piggs...) and a number of files including "crypticError.exe" and "Gameclient.exe"
Once you find the screenshots folder, the costume save files will be named Costume_AccountName_CharacterName_CC_Comic_Page_Bl ue_89789798.jpg and will look like your character on a comic book cover.
Right click and delete the ones you don't want.

I have the same problem. There SHOULD be a folder Program Files\Cryptic Studios\Champions Online\Live\Screenshots BUT no Screenshots folder exists under Live on my computer. I've done every conceivable search combinations. Some of the searches I've tried include:
*.jpg (and I looked for files saved on the day(s) when I clicked Save button in Char Creation or Tailor
Searched for any graphic/picture files saved on the day(s) when I clicked Save button
I looked under Pictures folder
And the result? According to my searches no graphic/JPEG files were created on the days when I saved my costumes. I even saw "your costume was saved" message flash in Tailor mode. :(
I bought the download version of the full game from Gamestop.com

Is your OS Vista or 7 and did you install in Program Files? I think that's what causes this issue, but I could be wrong.

Have you thought about adding it yourself? If th game saw that there was one it might dump your screen shots inside it.

I'm running CO on Vista.
I manually created under Live folder Live\Screenshots and Live\screenshots, started CO, clicked Save under Tailor mode and checked the newly created folders. No files (.jpg or any other graphic type) were created.

I'm running Vista and my screenshot folder is C:\Program Files (x86)\Cryptic Studios\Champions Online\Live\screenshots\
If it's not there then... I dunno. Run the game in Admin mode?

I could swear that I heard something about Vista limiting what programs can do in the Program Files folders, maybe that's causing the issue. I know on my brother's PC it's installed in the C:\Games\Champions Online directory and I've never had a problem with it.

In general, Vista won't allow programs to write into the Program Files directory unless the program is run in admin mode. The files are instead usually written to somewhere in Documents. It's a security thing.
Tbh the only time I find it annoying is when I want to edit my game ini files.

I run in Vista and I'd recommend just setting up a Games folder in your user folder and installing all games there, it has always served me well.
