The data format often depends on the nature of the document. Text is typically saved as PDF, and images are usually saved as JPG. Changing the document type often will change the data format.
Type "IJ Scan Utility" in the search box in the lower left of the screen.
Open IJ Scan Utility.
Press the "Photo" button for JPG.
The default save location for JPG scanned images is the Windows "Pictures" folder.

I am on the verge of throwing this scanner in the bin. Why oh why is it so complicated to not scan in a jpeg format? The web is full of complaints about this machine. Canon this is a big big mistake and this machine is hopeless.

I am having the same issues. I am using windows 10 and all i want to do is save images and documents in jpeg format and save them to a seperate folder. All images are save as PDF (which I do not want) and is a word file.

Me facing same problem. My system is Win 7 32 Bit. Irrespective of all settings I do, after pressing AUTO SCAN it always saves as PDF. Why can't you update your interface to just accommodate a 'Target File Type' selection? Why ??
