How can I scan my photos as JPGs not PDFs?

Hi i'm not very computer / Scanner literate. I cannot seem to find a way to convert all my scanned photos into JPGs to allow me to trim / crop zoom etc As my scanner seems to be pretty much plug and play they've all come out as PDFs.. Any advice is very much welcomed.. thanks.

Re: How can I scan my photos as JPGs not PDFs?

I'd like to know this too.  I have a new 4400 series HP printer.  I LOVE it.  Tried the scan feature.  but it scans to a PDF file.  I get no type of "menu" that allows me to "customize".  Plus a PDF is of no use to me.  I must say the QUALITY of the result is excellent. 

 

I got no manuals with the printer.  I did download a "basic" manual (about 25 pages).  i didnt want to "waste" ink by getting the full manual.

You can scan inJPEG format by going to lower left Windows Icon

go to all Programs

and find HP Solution Center

Click on that and then scan and save in JPEG format...

I guess the scan on the machine itself is only for documents

as it only scans if PDF format...

They sure don't make it easy do they?
