    Actually, photorec will recover whatever file extension you tell it to. If you only want jpg and png, you can tell photorec (testdisk) to only recover and search for jpg and png files.

  • @karel Thank's, I was just trying to let the OP know that so maybe they will give your answer a try. Also, I thought that I might get some clarification from the OP about that.

With photorec before you start [Search] under [File Opt] you can choose the file extensions you wanna recover.

photorec is a part of testdisk project but photorec is for recoverying files while testdisk is for recovering and repairing partitions.
