How to Find Your NFT Files in the IPFS (A Step-by-Step Guide)

Learn how to find NFT image files in the IPFS. Get your Cardano NFT's full resolution image from the IPFS by finding the NFT's metadata in a block explorer.

The NFT that you actually own. So, how do you find an NFT in the IPFS? And how do you get the full resolution image of an NFT?
