Some or the other time you really like a wallpaper or image in an app and you really want to have it. This guide is an easy one for any person and even a 15-year-old can do it. All though being an easy process but a bit lengthy, you should know some basic computing works such as installing a software and usage of File Extraction software’s like WinRar or Winzip or 7zip. This guide is for Windows users only, Sorry MAC Users.
First up first, What we will extract today are Wallpapers in HiLocker App (Shown in this Image).
So let’s get started and let us show you how to extract images from android apps for free (from APK’s).
Note: Do Follow all steps and also images alongside.
Installing Software called APK Image Extractor in your PC.
- Download APK Image Extractor from the link.
- Extract ZIP file you downloaded using Winrar or your favorite Extraction software.
- Now Run Setup.exe and go through the setup process.
- Click Finish and Run The Software.
- Click OK when asked to Register or run Trial version.
Open APK application you want to extract images from.
Here are two options for you to select. First, Find the image you want within the stack of this many images. or use our simple method. Our method is that Images of Wallpaper or any backgrounds will be big in Size compared to all other images in App. So Just go through Steps below.
Go to Images dropdown Menu and then to ‘Sort Images’ and then to ‘by Size’.
Scroll all the way down and you may find the images you needed if not you may go on scrolling upwards and try finding it.
Here you would right click on an image you want and go to Properties and find the folders it has been saved and if you want to copy it and check where it’s been saved.
In our case it is ‘HiLocker.apk/res/drawable-nodpi-v4/default_wall8.jpg’. Now you would think there is Save option here, but it wouldn’t work as its a trial version and you can’t extract it without purchasing the pro version.
Now here’s the tricky part what you have to do is follow these steps to extract the image.
Open up your Extraction Software, WinRar preferable and Drag your APK in it or just Explore to your saved location.
Extract the files from Winrar to any Folder of your choice.
Simply open the location you extracted files and Now you may see same ‘rev’ folder where you have seen it in Image properties in the APK Image Extractor Software. Now Go to the location where we saw the image is saved. In my case it was ‘/res/drawable-nodpi-v4/’.
Now you have found the images you wanted.
Things to Consider:
- Images saved in HiLocker app won’t be same for all the applications
