I am scanning several images together against a background. They automatically come up as pdf files. I want a jpeg file. I have done several of these kinds of composites and at first they were jpegs but now they are all pdf files. Is there a setting somewhere that I am missing. Thanks for any help.

To scan JPEG images with the IJ Scan Utility, the Photo option is the default way to scan JPEG's. You can also change the save settings by going in to the Settings menu of the program. This will allow you to change the save options for the different functions in the program.

I, too, have a problem with a Pixma all in one, where it randomly decides to put scans into the pdf format. Today I have scanned 6 off 5" x 3" photographs one after the other. The first 2 scans are stored as jpegs, the other 4 are pdfs! No settings were altered by me. It is so annoying to have to use 3rd party converters (at a lower resolution !) to undo this fault.
Asus K55A, Windows 8.1, Scanner is Pixma TS8150, drivers up to date.

I had the same problem with my TS3160, using PC and Windows 10. With the help manual file and the above answer from Canon I 'sort of' fixed it using the Custom scan setting in the IJ Scan Utility, not the 'save' function that only gives .pdf as you say. The Custom setting pre-sets the data format as document or picture. The setting is a default but has several options. Hope that works for your model.

I've been having the same issue and just stumbled across the solution. You must select "Color" on the "Color Mode" setting in order to be able to had the option od a jpg. output. Hope this helds.
