Backing up Kobo Arc Gallery

Hi all, I'm sure I've seen this information in one of the threads when I was having trouble with my Arc back in January but I can't seem to do the right search to find it. Anyway, I created 4 Tapestries that have various images in them. Once the image is saved in a Tapestry, is there any way to move it to the picture gallery? The reason I'm asking is because I've decided that I want to use Go Launcher instead of Kobo Discover/Tapestry. I assume once I replace it, I'll lose everything in my Tapestries. When I look at a Tapestry item, there is no option to save it to my Gallery. I also can't find details about the image (like what website I "pinned" it from).
To get back to my thread title, if I can find a way to move my tapestries to my gallery, how do I back up the gallery? I tried connecting the Arc to my computer but I can't see a file that even remotely relates my Picture Gallery (it sure as heck isn't the one entitled "Pictures").
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

'Pinned' images are saved to a directory that is not accessible to the user.

The easiest way to save these images is to open the pinned version and then email it yourself.

Hope that helps.

I tried emailing a couple of the pinned items to myself. They were sent but I received an error message that there is no app to open the attachments. How can I view & save the pictures?

Thanks, stevov, I haven't tried the download yet but I have a related problem. Since I updated to Jelly Bean, I can SEE my Tapestries and the pinned items but I can't open the pinned items. When I tap the picture to enlarge it, I get the following message: "We can not find this item." And yes, it is "can not" instead of "cannot." I hate spelling and grammar mistakes in system error messages. Does anyone else have this problem (with the pinned items, not the spelling mistake, LOL)?

There is no requirement in English grammar or spelling conventions for it to be "cannot" - it just happens to be more common than "can not" at the moment, though not as common as "can't", of course. However, if pressed, most English teachers seem to go with "can not" as the correct version (I know mine all did, though that was 25 and more years ago).
