Scanned a word document, saved as jpeg file

I am trying to scan a word document and it keeps saving it as a jpeg. Earlier I scanned a picture and it brought up adobe photoshop which I don't know why because I scanned pics before and this didn't happen and for some reason, now all my word docs have changed to jpeg files. I need to change a default setting but am not sure what it is I need to do. I have a HP Photosmart C5180 All-in-one.

By default all scanned documents are images (jpeg), OCR software converts the image to text for use with Word. I do not believe the scanner can tell what format to use without your input. More information is available here at HP's Online Support.

Converting scanned documents into Word documents

Scan the text pageyou want to convert into a Microsoft Word document.
Save the scanned image as a *.gif, *.jpeg file, if possible save it as a *.tiff file.
If the image file is not a TIFF file then OPEN that saved image file, go to File - Save As and name it as a TIFF file.
Go to Start- Programs - Microsoft Office Tools - Microsoft Office Document Imaging Go to File - Open and open your scanned document that has been saved in *.tiff format.
Go to Tools - Send Text to Word. You will get a prompt stating this process will taketime, Click OK.
This will take several minutes depending on your computer's speed and the size of the text document.When it has completed Microsoft word will open and the word document can now be edited and spell checked.
Spell check should be done on the document after conversion because not all the text may be converted correctly.

How to save scanned image from MX310 to computer?


Save the scanned image as a TIFF for archiving. TIFF files can beresaved and edited without compression loss, thus maintaining the highquality of an image. If you are enlarging an original 4 x 6 photo to8.5 x 11, save the scanned image as a TIFF at 600 dpi resolution. TIFFsprovide more detail than other file formats. Scanned images for emailand posting on the Web, which are to be viewed on a monitor, should besaved as JPEGs at 75 or 100 dpi. JPEGs generate smaller file sizes,which download faster on the Internet. Increase the resolution to 150or 300 dpi only if you are emailing a scanned JPEG image for therecipient to print. Save JPEGs at the maximum quality setting.

How do I change the type of file my scanner saves a document in?


No .Type reconiznition software is very complicated and expensive. All a scanner does is divide the sceen into millions of dots and copies those dots in Picture(JPEG) format. It's software know nothing except to copy what is there.

Setting the format of the picture i scan


Ok I am not sure why ya scanner won't save in JPEG .. however converting the files to JPEG is relitively "Simple". After saving the Scanned picture.. Open it up in say MS Paint, Painshop etc, then simply choose "Save As.." from the File Menu, and save it as a NEW image file this time with a JPEG extension. IE: origional... picture.png or picture.bmp ... save as ...picture.jpg .. ya should be good to go. :)
