having scanned a considerable number of photographs,which come from the
scanner as type files, iwould like to convert them all to JPEGS, is there a
shorter way of doing this without going through them one at a time. i
realize i should have done this when i saved them, which i now do, but
unfortunatly i did not. i hope can help me.
yours sincerly

Some graphics programs have "batch converters" - Corel's Paint Shop Pro,
for example. I believe, Irfanview (a very nice free program) has this
capability too. If not built in to the main app, check out the various
plugins for Irfanview.

PS: Keep the original scans. Use copies of those files for your
conversion experiments. Once the conversion is successful, decide what
you want to do with the originals: Keep them, delete them or move them
off the hard drive onto other media.

One reason to keep the originals: JPG is a lossy format - whatever
program you use will "drop pixels" to create the JPG files. If you ever
have need of higher quality images in the original scans, you would
still have them available.
