How Can I Restore Deleted Photos from iMac

I deleted delete some pictures from my iMac accidentally today, and I emptied the trash just now. But I want the pictures back eagerly! What can I do?

Since you have also emptied the trash, the best and easiest solution to recover deleted images on iMac is to use Time Machine backup. But if you don’t have Time Machine backup, you can still recover deleted photos from iMac as long as you take action immediately and follow right steps.
