Hi..first i would do is flash the original rom for your phone and your region with odin, unless you had that OTA update that installs knox and then going back will not work, if you are on the original rom yet just reflash it, and then check this post here and get one of the recoveries from @Silesh.Nair signature in his post as links are in my post already for that and get the tar file of the recovery and flash it with odin and once the recovery is done flashing you must reboot into the recovery right away again otherwise it will install the stock recovery again..this only has to be once and then it will go into the custom recovery after that when you boot up your phone.

Then put UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.93.zip onto your sdcard or external sdcard if you have one installed and flash it with the recovery and that will give you SuperUser status then and your phone will then be rooted as it works good doing it this way, by flashing the original rom or even a custom rom you should not lose your pics as that is usually left alone when doing this or can be synced with your google account if you did it this way.

This is what i would try first and see how it turns out especially when you flash the original rom..boot it up and see if you got your stuff back..unless the pics got deleted some how, use odin also to flash the original rom..just unpack it from it's zip file first and use the tar file inside.

Also do not wipe your internal sdcard as if your pics are on there it will delete then, you can do factory reset and the other stuff...let me know how you make out.
