Default [Q] Recover image files out of a Nandroid backup?

Hey guys,

Last week i flashed CM11 in my S3. Before doing it, i did a nandroid backup via recovery and backed up apps + system data via TBP.

I didn´t realize that i had all my photos saved in my internal memory, so i didn´t save them before wiping.

Since i did a Nandroid, my photos must be stored there, right?

My question is:

Is it possible to recover all the pictures from that backup, without having to flash it? Maybe via "mskip" Gs3 Toolkit?

Thanks for your time!!

Walter

Thanks for your response tallman43,

So if i understand correctly, Even if i restore my phone to it´s original via the Nandroid backup , my photos will still be gone?
