    I accidentally deleted all photos on my Samsung Galaxy S5's SD card, and used the DiskDigger app to recover. However, most of the photos recovered are not only poorer quality but only show the faces of the people in the photos, not the entire photos. Any ideas for a re-recovery?

    Real sd (removable card) or "internal sd" (part of the phone storage emulating an sd card"? For a removable card it's easy: a card reader, a computer, and one of many file recovery apps (Recuva is often recommended for Windows, and is free). Internal storage is much more of a problem.

    Try not to use the storage device in the meanwhile as this risks overwriting the data.
     
  3. Just as Hadron says, there are two cases:
    1) the missing pictures were in Samsung Galaxy S5's SD card. In this case, you can easily recover lost pictures from the SD card with a common image recovery tool.
    2) the lost pictures were actually stored in the internal storage of your Samsung phone. Then, common picture recovery software is unable to identify the internal memory of the Android phone. You have to use professional Android data recovery software to retrieve lost pictures.
    Good luck!
