How to backup photos (s.o.s i'm about to have an anxiety attack)

My phone got stolen this weekend, and i had inside 2 years worth of photos. I factory restored the phone a couple of times and everytime i signed into my google account my photos appeared again. I understand this is google back up? (no?) Is there any way to access the photos from my computer or another android device.  

 

 

P.s: no, they dont appear on my google plus account

p.p.s: The device it's a Sony Xperia S LT26i

On your Pc sign in to your Gmail/google account then got to Googles home page and click on 9 little squares in the top right ansd scroll down and select Photo's and they should be there

No, not there. They just used to appear when i logged into my account on the device.

Example: i reset the phone because it's giving me problems. Everythign its gone but when i enter on google plus account everythign syncs in and my photos are back. I was not able to acces them from here before, but did not try much.

 

I just wanna know if this would happen just on that device, so if i get a new phone and i log into it my photos wont appear, or if i can access them form here otehr way
