Hi Steve

First, a quick way to the stack or standalone folder is specialfolderpath(“resources”). 

Check that your folders permissions are ok. 

export snapshot from rect 0,0,100,100 of this card to url ("binfile:"&specialFolderPath("resources")&"/Pic.jpg") as JPEG

See if this helps when using your put tTempCrop into url().
