When you accidently format SD memory (or any memory) and want to recover files on it, it is very important that you STOP using the SD card immediately. The formatting process does not actually erase the files on it, but it does erase the table that points to the files so they can be overwritten. If you use the memory card after accidentally formatting it, there is a good chance that new files will overwrite the old files partially or fully. That's probably why you're seeing some photos with parts missing. A professional data recovery service or some paid-for software might be able to do better but it won't be free.
