I think I partially understand what you are saying here.
As to the cause it's my guess you are using several different applications to deal with your pictures and each one is dropping them in a different location.

RE: my pictures at the moment are all in writing instead of pictures
What are the file extensions of those weird "pictures" ?
File extension is represented by the last 3 or 4 letters of the file.
ex....... .jpg, .png, etc etc etc.

RE: and they are all over the place
You will have to do it manually. Not easy way out.
In your computer there is a Pictures folder, transfer your pictures into that foler.
You can either use " drag/drop " method, or use the right click context meu Move To option.
If you do not have Move To option, use this tutorial to install both the Copy To and move To options :
Context Menu - Add Copy To Folder and Move To Folder

What are you using to open these files, what is the default open with program.
It sounds to me as if you seeing code instead of what that code generates.
Wrongful program association could cause that.

Have you set the system recovery point before?
Have you backuped the files in advance?
If not, it may be getting pretty hard.
