When you browse for an image using virt-manager, /var/lib/libvirt/images 
is the only location in which you can select image files without adding 
a new "volume."  The authors of the tutorials you read may have assumed 
that users would copy images to that location rather than adding a new 

You can help make those tutorials better by contacting their authors and 
suggesting that they mention that users should copy image files there.  
I'm sure you're not the only person whose time could be saved by a 
helpful tip.
