    I just did a restore and forgot to take the photos off my iPhone first. However, I did a backup before I restored. The problem is that I can not restore as I needed a "fresh" install. Can I retrieve my photos from my backup without restoring it?

    If it's not encrypted then it's very possible as I have been in the same situation, however if it's encrypted I don't think you can, at least not without great difficulty anyway.

    I use iPhone Backup Extractor http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=4974 and extract iOS Files which contain the photos
