Recover deleted pics from SD card

I accidentally deleted all the pictures in my camera's SD card during a vacation. I then took some more pictures on the subsequent days, and saved them in the same card as I was on vacation and did not have internet access.
After coming back I am trying several Recovery softwares, but none of them seem to be working. One software could recover about 200 images but they are not opening, it gives a message that the images are corrupt. Is there any way I can recover those images?

    If you've tried Recuva and other recovery software then the answer is likely no. When you delete a file off a device, the data for that file still exists in its entirety on that device, but the device just treats this data as unnecessary. When you start saving new files onto your device, the device begins writing over the data that made up that "deleted" file, and once that information is written over it's permanently gone. The recovery software can detect any information that wasn't written over which is why you can still detect these 200 images, but because you saved new pictures onto the device, you wrote over some of the necessary data that made up these images.

    Your only real option from here is to send it to a data recovery expert, but their prices are typically inordinate (upwards of hundreds of USD sometimes) and there's no guarantee they'll even be able to get the data back, unfortunately.
