    If you know the folder you put them in you can connect the phone to a computer and copy them off. Pictures are usually in the DCIM folder or the Camera folder under it, either on the internal or external ("Phone" or "Card") SD cards.

    Hey there, zhtincctx, welcome to our AndroidForums!

    I don't think the .nomedia file will affect your PC's ability to see those files that are normally hidden by creating that file.

    So you should be able to see them...:dontknow:

    Did you happen to have USB debugging enabled? (if you don't know what that is, then you probably don't). If you did/do, you should be able to grab you files using the adb pull command (but you can't enable USB debugging if you haven't already).
