I have a problem that i have looked and looked and can't find any answer for it so hoping some experts here might have the answer.

I need to recover a photo of my dog which although is set as profile photo the original on my sd card is deleted and i would like to recover it before i reset the phone back to factory.

My understanding of this is that the photo is stored in the database of android contacts which is why it doesn't show up in gallery or any other file finding or photo finding apps. I would love to extract it as the dog has passed away and it's one of my favourites of him.

Please can you tell me how to extract the photo or if i am wrong regarding the location can anyone help me find it and remove it?


Yours in Hope

I'll be in your Google account if you are synced... I'm not sure... Haven't tried.. Ever... But just go to g+ check your photos there... It might be there...!

Back when google was trying to push their naming convention of splitting 1 word into 2 i ended up with 2 google+ accounts but the photo is not on either. I ended up with scotchmizzed and Scotch Mizzed which i hate but they make it so difficult to combine,just not worth the hassle.

I just know it's on this device and would love to get it off.. Thanks anyway

It should be in the Google contacts (if you are synced).

If you can't find it anywhere, you can always take a screenshot of the screen and then edit the image to get only the picture.

This is what I've had to do and with a bit of cropping it's not bad but was wanting to know if I could access the original in the hope it was maybe a better quality. Thanks very much for the reply anyway.

You can Connect your SD card to a system and run a Photo Recovery Software to scan through your removable drive. The software will scan through your removable drive and list out all the recoverable photos and videos for you to preview. If it is not in the SD card then you have to change the location and set it as your phone's internal memory from where the picture have been lost
