How do I save to a sub folder in mail, or how can I create one?

For example I want to save a picture but mail is only giving me the option of pictures.

In windows I could create a sub folder and then save the file to that.

    Open the Mail app>click on"Mailbox" in the Menu Bar above>click on "New Mailbox" in the list>in the resulting box, type the name of your new Mailbox folder>click OK.

    What I should have asked is ....

    How do I save to a sub folder in Documents an item received in mail.

    For example say I got a photo through mail and I want to save it - Mail only lets me save it to Pictures.

    When in windows I could create a new folder from my email in my documents name it then save the picture to that. I cant find any facilty in Mountain Lion that allows me to create a new folder from mail in documents to do that unless I'm missing something.

    At the moment everything I receive and want to save in documents I have to create a new folder later and drag the items over, which is a big hassle.

    I get a complete option by highlighting the email, go to File>Save As and down the bottom New Folder and it gives me a finder window where I can crete that folder where ever I want and save anything to any of those created folders. Do you not have that option?
