My screen isn't acting right. I've been advised to put my phone in safe mode but I'm fearful of losing pictures as I don't have an SD card.

Copy the pictures to cloud storage then or get an SD card. You need to have copies of them anyway, what if you drop and break the phone? Or it just stops working?
Once you lose data it's too late to back it up.

Safe Mode just loads the system bare, it will not delete anything. Now if you are talking about doing a wipe or a system restore, that will delete everything off the phone.
