Lost Picture

  Mr "B" 21:55 23 Aug 2007

Please Please Please Please can anyone help me. I transferred a photo from my digital camera and set it as wallpaper on my pc. I didn't save the picture anywhere on the pc and i have now deleted from my camera without printing it but it still remains as my wallpaper. Can anyone please tell me if i can retrieve this picture and re-save it so that i will be able to print it. I am thinking that as it is saved as my wallpaper it must be somewhere on the computer but i can't find it.

It is quite easy to retrieve the deleted photo if it was on a card in the camera and has not been over-written by any other photo's.

Plenty of free programs here ... click here

If the above doesn't work, then right click your desktop and arange desktop items, then untick show desktop items. When they dissapear, hold alt and then click prt Scr on your keyboard. This will take a screen shot of it, paste it into paint even and then save it.

Good good. Glad to hear it. It's not the technical way, but manual ways work better sometimes.
