Welcome to the Apple Community.
Are you sure that back up contains your photos.

No, I'm not sure!
But anyhow, is it possible to retrieve the information in icloud to the iphone?
...and, how can I garantee that the pictures are saved in the daily icloud backup?

If you aren't sure. The best I could suggest is that you back up to iTunes, (so you can return to where you are now if things go wrong) and then try a restore from iCloud.
Turning photos on in your iCloud back up settings, should ensure your photos are backed up.
Being able to back up to the cloud can be very useful, especially if you don't have access to a computer or have infrequent access to one, however unless you specifically need to use iCloud for back up, you will find backing up to iTunes significantly more convenient and possibly more reliable.
