Hello knewtunes and welcome to Seven Forums.

Based on my own personal experience I think you'd have better luck using specialized file recovery software. When files are deleted from a hard drive (or even the recycle bin), the files remain on the hard drive until some other data writes over the picture(s). So it's important to limit computer usage. A free tool called Recuva (made by the same people who make CCleaner) has pretty good results.

There are other free and paid software available. You might want to read up on them from a different machine.
