David if it makes any difference, recently Debian installed a Debian Stretch Theme and the Next wallpaper or the wallpaper you where using could have been changed or I should say probably did get changed, I run testing and Sid so I'm used to many themes being wiped out and replaced, it's the way of testing and not something you would expect from a stable system which Stretch is not, yet. As I told Cindy, you can find the installed wallpaper in /usr/share/wallpaper.

I haven't noticed any new wallpapers (I too am running Debian 8.8 with XFCE and have my wallpaper set to one I like which I saved in ~/Pictures/Wallpaper) I also had no problems with the wallpapers going away and also was able to change them in the settings. I do notice that they don't all *stay* listed in the settings (except the current one being used) if they are located somewhere other than the default wallpaper directory. But other than that, no problems here, so far.

I did update using apt-get dist-upgrade and not apt-get upgrade. Maybe that made a difference?
