Hi guys ... Well I want to export all the contact photos Android is currently storing for all my 'Phone' contacts ..

Does anyone know where Android stores all contact photos/images ?

I'm currently running a Sense 3.6 ROM (Virtuous Affinity) on my Desire Z ..

Well I could not find them anywhere on the SD card, but I did find another solution to this, which can work until something better comes along:

1) Download and install Titanium Backup
2) Open Titanium Backup, and create a backup of the Contacts app
3) Open the SD card on your PC, and then open the 'TitaniumBackup' folder
4) Find your backup here .. if its date sorted, find the backup that was created most recently maybe ..
5) Open the TAR file in WinRAR, and then open the 'files' folder inside the TAR file
6) All associated contact images should be here now ..

Please 'Thank' this post if this helped you out
