    Did you happen to have this information backed up anywhere else? I always suggest having backups either on the cloud or on another hard drive (like your PC) -- If you didn't have these backed up then unfortunately this information is gone.

    They were originally on the SD card.....so when you put the photos in private it removes it off the card?

    Hopefully you haven't done anything to your SD card yet, like reformatting it. There's a lot of file recovery options available online that you can install on your Mac/PC and they will recover most, if not all, of your missing pics. Unfortunately, I've never found a truly free option. Many of the programs that do this do offer a free service, but that's basically to scan your card and tell you how many files were found, but in order to actually recover the files you need to pay. $35-40 seems to be the going rate for a quality program.

    I had to purchase 1 myself last year to recover vacation photos (I purchased a cheap micro sd card and it stopped working after I had about 400 pics on it). Anyway, I'm pretty sure the name of it was Stellar Phoenix, but can't say for certain because I'm not at home near my Mac. I came across it by a generic Google search for file recovery software. Might want to give that a shot.
