    Welcome to Android Central
    Are you sure you pulled out the battery while it was updating? (should've had an Android robot laying down if it was)
    Can you boot into download or recovery mode?
    Download: Home + Volume Down + Power
    Recovery: Home + Volume Up + Power

    Try to boot into recovery mode, it won't delete anything from the phone. I just want to see if it's still working for you. If it doesn't, then your phone is hard bricked. I don't know of a way to retrieve your photos if it is

    It would be rather unusual if neither Recovery mode nor Download mode worked. It may just be that you're not familiar with how to get into those modes:

    - you use Recovery mode to clear the system cache and to Factory Reset
    - you use Download (aka Odin) mode (showing the Android guy) to load/reload firmware
    - the key sequences to enter both modes are very similar, and they are timing dependent so it may take a few tries to get it working
    -- Recovery = Volume Up + Home + Power
    -- Download = Volume Down + Home + Power
    - for either, you start with the phone completely off
    - press and hold the required keys simultaneously, and release them all when you see the swirling logo (not the static white text)

    Try Recovery mode first (use the Volume rockers to navigate; use the Power button to select) and if it boots into this mode just clear the cache and then restart. If the phone doesn't boot into Recovery mode then try Download mode. If that works, you can try using the Kies software to reload the firmware.

    Needing to get information off makes it tough to recommend a solution to the booting problem since there are no guarantees when reloading firmware, which is what it sounds like you need to do.

    I'd suggest using Odin to reload the firmware; you should be able to find your firmware here - use the drop-down list in the upper left to select your model number. Be sure to select the same version of firmware that was on your phone.
