if they were in your sd card then you can use sd-card recovery software on your computer.
If they were on your internal sd card i would try looking for a folder called vault and checking if pics are in there, and if not try reinstalling the app.

Not long ago, I was doing something and the phone rebooted. I lost about 300 pictures and they were all on my SD Card and any of the "Recovery" apps I tried found NOTHING recoverable. I tried an app I found out about from the Market called "Fish Bowl". It said it recovered 260 pictures but there were over 325 pictures it found and many were ones that I intentionally deleted so it really worked well for me. Hope it helps you too. BTW if you add anything to the phone where the pictures were, It will "step" over those deleted pictures and will be forever unable to be recovered, so be careful where you add anything new till your recovery is completed.

Aloha 'n Good Luck!

yes when you "delete" something on a device or computer...You're only telling the software and OS to not show it, the physical item is still stored on the physical drive, UNTIL something else (like another picture) is written on the same physical spot on the drive.
if you factory reset a phone, the old info is still physically on the device until it's written over by new data.
Just because Android, or windows moved it to the recylcle bin and deleted it, doesn't mean it's physically gone from the drive.
