Photos corrupted, but not in thumbnail mode?

Specs: Macintosh
I recently lost all of the photos off of my SD card. I downloaded StellarPhoenix Photo Recovery for Mac and it recovered most of the photos. When i preview them in the program I can see them ok, and when i see the thumbnail of the file on my mac it looks fine. However, when i open the image with any reader or program (I'm using Preview), the images corrupt with green/purple/red lines and stuff all over them.
Did I pay £30 for *this*? Can someone PLEASE help me recover the photos so that they're ok again?

Below are two examples...
Actual image 1:
Preview 1:

Actual image 2:
Preview 2:

How can I stop this from happening? I'm desperate to have these photos. Surely if they can exist normally within the program there must be a way for them to exist in their full size without the colour distortion etc.?

Thanks very much,

Do you still have the SD card? Have you tried a Windows based recovery program like Recuva? I used it to recover photos and movies from a Canon camera when they were accidentally deleted.
