how to use my image garden and save scanned photos in a format I can actually use?

I have a new MG 6821 printer.  when I scan anything in, it automatically goes to "my image garden" and I can't seem to do anything the the files outside of this program.  Can't move them out.  Even when I set a new default folder I can't seem to get files to go there.  

 

Can anyone offer me some help?  I simpy want to scan, edit and store some photos -- this software design seems to have printing in mind only.   It is possible to simply scan in JPEG files and use them with software I already have?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Do you have Quick Menu; it should have come on the printer CD.

 

Use Scan Settings to do what you want.
