SetDirectory, Import


I had a number of files to Import which at first had the whole (long)
path in the filename. This worked fine, but looks ugly, so I decided
to use SetDirectory to set it once and then have the filenames in the
import commands without the path.

It could not find the files so I started testing:

SetDirectory["d:\\blahblah"];
Directory[]
FileNames["*.png"]
Import["image.png"]
Directory[]
FileNames["*.png"]

The output is:

d:\blahblah
{image.png}
File not found
<some other directory from mathematica>
{}

Does the Import command change the current directory?
Any help appreciated.
