    Using articles can be very confusing for some students. In this case, the sentence is correct with or without "the".

    Both are correct, and here's how I would reason it.

    photos of Britney Spears - photos in general - obviously the ones at that particular website

    the photos of Britney Spears - specific photos at that particular website
