Why the default ambiences are working and do not disappear even the ambience picture is not in gallery i.e. where those default ambience pictures are stored?

Splitting original question to two separate questions due to partially answered double question.

Ok - thanks.

Is there any chance to export the seed pictures of default ambiences as I would like to re-create the default ambiences to get all the new ambiance settings active?

Copying the pictures to the gallery by using the file browser from the store? I am planning to play with the default ambiences as well as soon as I will have time for it.

as I am not so experienced to use the developer mode and terminal program. I actually don't know what is the content of the folder you indicated.

what filebrowser you were referring to as I would like to try it?

Related to ambience creation I am only assuming that the selected base picture would be some how extrable after it is used for ambience - Is it like that?

In the Jolla store there is a native app called "File Browser". You can copy files with this app. Just be a bit careful while doing it ;) Yes, you can copy the base picture from there.

Thanks - In fact I already found the file browser and did some experiment with custom ambience custom based on the picture of the camera ambience.

The result of quick test was surprising. Where my default camera ambiance creates ambiance with cyan as main color, the same camera picture creates custom ambiance with amber as main color - What causes such big difference between two ambiances created based on same picture?
