Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

It's unusual for System Restore to lose anything so the may be still be in there somewhere. Click on My Computer and click on Search then on Files and Folders to look for files of the type jpg so in the search box, type *.jpg.

A lot of what shows up with be pictures which are embedded in Windows but once you find one of yours, that will point to the folder where the others probably are.
