The easiest way I can think of to do that is to create a new data partition and save your pictures, videos, documents there, instead of on your C partition. The installed program files have to stay with your C partition. After that you can create system images of just your OS and installed programs. I would still advise that you backup your other data as well, preferably on an external HDD, or DVD.
