    I just want to share something what happened to me right now and WARN other Lumia 920 users.

    Well I took a picture of my girlfriend taking a shower yesterday ;) and after examining sharpness of "water drops" ;) I deleted that photo from my camera roll.
    Now when I pick up my phone and unlock it to see something, that very same photo showing on photo hub live tile !?!?!!?
    Guess I was surprised (luckily nobody else close to me). Then I double checked camera roll to see did I really deleted that photo, and yes I did, photo is not there.

    So just warning all of the others who takes a pictures that you want to keep for yourself, be aware, even if you delete it, it still shows on tile on your home screen !!!!!

    did you try reboot/ soft reset your 920?

    you can choose the background picture on the picture hub setting if reboot/ soft reset cant slove the problem. Never go for hard reset before you try anything. :)

    It goes away after half an hour or so. I guess it runs a background job to pick and resize the photo its shows on the tile.

    Thats not just a lumia issue - Happens on all WP8 devices - only way i have found of stopping it is remove the tile from the start screen turn your phone off and back on again then put the pictures tile back where it was.

    Had a rather embarassing moment with a deleted picture so had to find a way to solve the issue quickly.

    ...A girlfriend and a Lumia 920 in the shower! So, it actually CAN get more exciting! Anyway could it be that the displayed picture was a skydrive backup pic?

    Could you post it so I can compare if any of my photos are as sharp?

    If you define favorites, it will only show those pictures on the tile/in the hub.

    Mine does the same thing. I figured it was pulling them from SkyDrive. Surprise pics always brighten my day.

    You can tell it to stay on one pic, or define favorite pics

    If you define some favorites, it only shows them. If none is defined it just shows randomly selected from pics saved on the phone.

    I took picture yesterday, deleted after examining pixels ;) and then later at evening restarted L920, Live tile showing picture today. Picture is not saved on skydrive.
    (Joke, if someone want to see if it behave same way on other L920 I can send picture ;) , anyone ? ) LOL

    BTW when I unlock phone now it shows different picture, so who knows..... (maybe better safe then sorry, remove tile, restart, back with tile ? )

    It must be a skydrive issue; I removed some racey pictures I'd previously taken the other day because they were showing in the photo tile, but since backing them up onto my PC and into a 'locked album' app, they no longer appear in the photo hub tile.

    Its definitely not Skydrive. The solution I found works. So the only thing i can think of is that it stores images in a cache for the live tiles so even when pics are deleted the image is still in the cache. It takes removing the tile, restarting the phone and replacing the tile to clear the cache of deleted images

    Strange. Send me the pic so I can see if its in metadata. 😊

    It happened to me as well and I don't use SkyDrive and I am on a HTC.

    Yep. I've noticed deleted images appearing in the tile rotation several times... slightly annoying, usually a couple of resets does the trick for me, but not always. Re-pinning the tile sounds like it should finish the job.

    OP, it might be a good idea if you take the advice of a couple people in this thread and just set up a bunch of "favorite" photos for your tile to rotate through. That way, you don't have to worry about evidence from sporadic encounters with your girlfriend showing up at the wrong time ;)

    I had the same problem, can be embarrassing but I just open up the picture hub and hit shuffle background and it seems to solve it for me.

    I thought it did but no, it was because they were uploaded on Skydrive and I hadn't deleted them there.

    Here is an alternate warning: don't take stupid pictures, or any you would regret, with a mobile device. BTW, if you linked the camera to a skydrive (or other) account, you might also want to check there for an additional copy.

    East fix was listed above. Once you start adding pics as favorites the live tile will only use those marked as favorites.
