SKYPE Experts help! (Or those good with comps) - January 28th 2010, 01:25 AM

I recently recovered my Skype account after years of not using it...I don't know how the hell I remembered that password but I did.

On it, my display picture is a CLASSIC picture of me with 110 pens, 5 action figures, 5 CDS, and 4 highlighters in my giant afro.

Now, I think most of you can see why I would want this picture back.

The problem is that it isn't saved anywhere. I thought I lost it, until I saw it as my display picture...So I'm wondering if theres any way I can recover it? If I remove my display picture it will erase forever because the file isn't anywhere.

I also had the idea of enlarging the picture, and then working from there. But I haven't found a way to do this either.

So could anyone help me out?

Learn how to take a screenshot here

Then just paste your screenshot into MS Paint/Photoshop/etc and crop out the display picture.

I tried this already, but the picture is so small that most people probably won't know what it is. And if I enlarge it looks reeally crappy.

I'm not sure there's much more you can do. I'm guessing the picture stored by Skype is the same size as the one it displays. The only other thing I can think to do is to find the Skype pictures folder and look to see if it is stored there. I can't remember the folder path, and I'm not currently on a computer (cell phone ). I'm pretty sure it is a hidden folder called Application Data > Skype in the My Documents folder.
