HTC Photo Recovery - How to Recover Deleted Photos from HTC Device

Specifically a screenshot that I saved and cropped. I deleted it before I was done with it and I am hoping to find a way to bring it back if possible. Is there a way to recover deleted photos from HTC One M9 smartphone? Any words of advice would be appreciated, thanks!

As a proud owner of HTC device, you must receive and capture lots of wonderful pictures and photos with your beloved gadget. Such images are saved on the memory card of your HTC phone or HTC tablet. However, there is a risk of saving data on the phone or tablet directly because they could be lost due to various reasons, such as accidentally deleting, formatting, device stolen or damage. When files lost or deleted from the HTC device, no trash or recycle bin is offered like on a computer to store those files.
