Running Lion. I took a picture when I set up OSX to set as my user picture and I can't find it anywhere on the computer.

Can someone tell me where it is located?

Did you see the image I posted? Enter a space in the search field. That search will find all pics modified in the past day.
I was unable to find it. But it's still set as my UP.

I remember when I got my Mac (about 2 months ago now) I set up Lion and it prompted me to take a photo or choose one from my Library. I took one with my girlfriend.I looked in PhotoBooth and multiple other places, but nothing.

Glad someone found it! You'd think you could just copy it in and out through the system settings or something.

Is this automatically deleted at some point? Yesterday I accidentally changed my user picture and wanted this one back. However, I can't find it in /Library/Caches. There's nothing that begins with com.apple.user.

Running OSX Lion, btw.

The link doesn't work anymore..:(

Is there anyone out there that can shed a light on this? I, too, really like my user picture and would love to use it for other things as well..

Cheers! :)

I found a way to do it!
1. Go to your contacts/address book
2. Find yourself
3. Change your profile picture to the picture you want to save
4. Click on the picture so that it has the blue thing around it (just shows that you clicked on it)
5. Press Command + C
6. You can go on iMessage and paste!
