Important Note: You need to know before performing the iPhone photo recovery
Not all lost photos can be recovered from iPhone from iTunes backup, such as you snapped a photo and accidentally deleted it immediately, or received a photos by iPhone and deleted it soon. These photos can only be recovered with iPhone/iPad/iPod Recovery, using the Recover from iOS Device option. But if you have synced your iPhone with iTunes after you get the photo, and delete it later, then you can retrieve it from iTunes backup.
Why? Because when you sync your iPhone, iTunes will automatically backs up the data on your iPhone before the sync, and the backup file updates along with your sync every time. The data is backed up in a .sqlitedb file, which can't be previewed or extracted, so it's helpless even you find the backup file. But with an iPhone photo recovery, you can extract specific contents from it.
An important thing you should know: Don't sync your iPhone with iTunes again after finding your lost photos; don't use your iPhone after losing photos, if you don't have a backup. Or the photo will lost forever. This is very important.
