I ran the NRT(Nexus Root Tool) earlier today - before doing it I took out my SD card to make sure it wouldn't delete my photos - and when I just checked, it didn't show in my gallery.

I've tried several undelete tools, but my Nexus isn't showing up as a drive so it doesn't get recognized. I've checked and it does say that about 90% of my SD card is free space (meaning, my pictures definitely aren't on it)

Can someone please help me out? This is so upsetting.

If you took out your SD card then how could it be deleted? – najus Mar 1 '13 at 3:20
YOu took out Galaxy Nexus's SDcard? (Nexus didn't support external SDcards) – Akhil Mar 1 '13 at 3:46
Right. First specify exactly which phone you have. The one you specified in your tags doesn't have an SD card slot, and you couldn't possibly have removed an SD card from it. – Michael Hampton Mar 1 '13 at 4:06
I'm afraid the OP has mistaken the SIM card as an SD card. – Al E. Mar 4 '13 at 20:53
It didn't show in your gallery, but that doesn't necessarily mean it got deleted. I would use a file explorer to check out the sd card and verify. It could be mounted under something else. – Chance Mar 4 '13 at 21:13

Undelete tools (that run on your PC) won't work for the phone's internal storage on any modern version of android. (Android 4.0 and newer to not present the phone's internal storage as a block device.) However an app that runs on the phone itself might be able to recover something.

Hexamob seems to be the most recommended, and will work for you as you are rooted.

Good luck.
