When I started up my imac this morning I saw that my desktop wallpaper was changed to Apple original wallpaper, is this normal?

It happens to me sometimes in Big Sur too. Don't know what's the issue or how to fix it. It's probably on Apple to fix this bug.

Were you using a built-in wallpaper, or was it a custom one?

I've found that MacOS very stupidly doesn't actually copy the file if you supply your own photo (it just links to it), so if you move the file you were using it resets.

The images is placed in a costume folder and the screen saver has worked for years. I tried to copy some image to the picture folder, but it didn't work either, no picture found it says. It must be a bug, I will wait until next beta version and hope it will work then.

Maybe it's because there is a new dynamic wallpaper in the beta9. it's now dynamic throughout the day instead of just light and dark. Is there anyway to extract the new wallpaper from the beta9 and share it?
