DO AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE (or better yet, nothing) on the computer until you can install and use the recovery software you settle on. Linux is a bit more aggressive about reusing disk space than Windoze is, you could corrupt the deleted files.

Show FS type (probably ext4):
$ df -T
(it confusingly calls NTFS "fuseblk")
If your partition isn't a separate "/home", then it's probably "/".

There's a possibility that you don't get all your photo's back when parts of the disc are overwritten by i.e. installing a program.
