Every once in awhile, after booting up, a desktop image appears that I haven't used in months. I don't even have the picture any longer. Ehen shutting down I always have the box checked to reopen windows.
Not sure where the image is coming from(it was deleted a long time ago).

There's evidently a copy of it still around -- the computer has to be pulling it from somewhere.

If you back up your system, it may be finding it there. Use Spotlight to find where it is hiding.
