My wife accidentally deleted most of her photos from her phone.  Does anyone have experience with any of the PC applications that can be used to recover the pictures?

Assuming the Samsung is seen as a "drive", I would give Recuva and PhotoRec, a look-see.
They"re free.

Recuva

PhotoRec (though now it seems to be called Wondershare Data Recovery)

MY machine doesn't see the phone as a drive.  Also I don't see a removable memory card.

Then the only options are either to find an android app via the app-store and try those, or send the device to a professional data recovery agency, which won't be cheap.

I'd take this as a reminder to often sync the data between the Phone and the PC, and / or the cloud...

You may need to go into "USB debugging mode" to get the driver installed.
