Hello and thank you for choosing JustAnswer.com.

Yes, you can usually get them back. What it takes to get them back is image recovery software. Once you delete, this is your only option.

There are several image recovery products on the market and you can find others beyond what I am giving you the link for by searching image recovery. Cost is similar between the different programs. I personally use Card Recovery and I depend on it for my needs:

Card Recovery

Run the free trial first. It will show you the images that can be recovered from the card by file name only. Once you see that it's found your images, then go ahead and pay for the full version to actually recover them. It's about a $40 program and worth every penny. And of course, once you have actually paid for it you can use it unlimited as the need arises.

Please let me know if I can be of additional help.
