    Hello all,

    I was wondering if there was a way to extract a Contact photo from my iPhone 5? The photo I have saved isn't in my Camera Roll or Photo Albums.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    Not possible unless you want to take a screenshot of the picture.

    Even through jail breaking? Surely there is a way to achieve this. The phone stores the photo somewhere, or am I missing something? Thanks!

    It's stored in the .vcf file. Maybe with jail breaking it's possible

    On iOS, the image file and contact data is stored within a SQLite database. You'd have to extract it from that.
