    If the photos were on the SD card, mount the card in your compter (use a USB adapter if you have to) and run PhotoRec - CGSecurity (you burn it to a CD and boot the computer from the CD). Do it when there are some good movies on TV - it'll take a long time.

    If the photos were on the phone, you probably broke more than the LCD, and the photos are most likely gone.

    But in the future you're going to back up ALL your important files to your computer, aren't you?
