What you can do to get your pics back if you have not got a lot is to look at each thumbnail, view the image, click to view full size, and then right click to save the image. The image you down load this way is the original pic. Well a digital copy of it anyway.
The pics are stored at:-
(Where subdomain is the same in both cases and is the name you chose. album-name is the album you are interested in.)
So you could SSH into your account and create a folder and then use wget to get the image using
Still a long process because you need to do each one by itself. (wildcards do not work).
It is probably quicker to right click them and save as 'save image'.
If you have hundreds then you can see why it is a good idea to always keep a copy.
