    Welcome to Android Central.

    Go to Gallery and tap on the 3 dots in the top right corner of your screen. When it opens go to Setting. Once it opens you will see the Recyle Bin. Tap on it and if the pictures are there you can restore them.

    To restore them, tap on Edit, then tap on the images you want to restore. Then you will be given the option to Restore or Delete them.

    If images are not there, unfortunately you deleted them by deleting the DCIM folder. That is the folder where images are stored. Thanks and good luck.

    For future reference, Christie (won't help you right now, unfortunately) - download and install the Google Photos app. Set up "backup and sync" and everytime you take a photo it will back it up automatically to Google Photos (on the web) for free. Never worry about losing a photo again.

    Then when you start running out of space, you can have the Photos app delete those photos on your phone that are already backed up.
