More info might help. What do you mean by the mac has stalled. Crashed?

I did the same by accident once. It was an incredible pain in the neck. The only thing I could do to recover was to drag the photos from the desktop to the trash, starting with about ten at a time. You will need to empty the trash regularly as you go along.

Each file on the desktop has an icon which takes up memory when it's on the desktop so I am not surprised your machine has ground to a halt
