Transfer photos from a locked phone

So a few years back, I was changing the glass on my Samsung Focus when I accidentally ripped the LCD. I want to take my photos off the phone, but I can't access them because I had a password and can't unlock it to make it connect with the computer. Is there any way of moving those photos that doesn't involve replacing the whole screen just for some pictures? Thanks!

Don't you have them backed up to SkyDrive/OneDrive? Windows Phone does that by default.

Otherwise, you're going to have to replace the screen just for photos, because you know, security.
