Hi good people

Can someone please tell me where is the actual image of the lock screen located?
I accidentally lost the original picture and now recovering the one in use in the lock screen is my only chance.

I can find the stock wallpapers with astro file manager, but have no clue as to where the active lock screen image is located.

You'll find all images in the gallery. Go into the launcher menu and tap on "Gallery". If you browse a bit, you'll find all images and even the lock screen images as well.

I'm afraid not. The image I'm using in the lock screen is no longer in the gallery, because of a careless act of mine.
I need to know where it is kept for being used in the lock screen.

Okay, try this one:

Display > Screen display > Wallpaper

Here you should be able to find all wallpapers or images you could use for the lock screen. Let me know if this has helped.

No it doesn't help because the image is no longer in the gallery.
As I said, I deleted it accidentaly.

I think the only way to find it using a file explorer like Astro, that show all the files in the device. The problem is I don't know where the system keeps it!
