[Q&A] Where is the lockscreen image saved?

Hi there.
I changed the pictures of my lockscreen and the normal wallpaper (using a third party app I think).
Unfortunately I deleted the picture I used on my lockscreen accidentically and do not have a backup.
As the picture is still on my lockscreen it must be somewhere in a directory of the phone but I am unable to find it. Help please.

Also I need the picture of the lockscreen, not the current wallpaper. I was able to retrieve the current wallpaper using an app from the play store. This app was unfortunately unable to get the picture of the lockscreen.


I use the MI9 T Pro, MIUI Global 11.0.3 but I guess this question might be answered here or in the Android 10 general forum.

Thanks.

Open file manager, go to setting and enable 'show hidden files' then go back to file manager list, find and open 'MIUI' folder then you can see a folder name '.wallpaper' its in there.

Thanks, that helped.
It is actually in Miui/theme/.data/content/lockscreen and then the biggest .mrc-file (which can be renamed to a jpg).

What app did you used to get the wallpaper??? I am having the same trouble right now. However, the current app i use (named: get current wallpaper) doesn't give me the originally resolution of the image. It gives me my screen resolution for the image instead

In my case (Mi10Pro, MIUI 12.5 China ROM), I can access with the following path from File Manager (show hidden files), ( Mi10Pro\Android\Data\com.android.thememanager\files\MIUI\.wallpaper)
