Old family photos saving as PDF file

I am scanning dozens of old family photos and my Canon Scanner keeps saving the pictures as a PDF file. Is this better than just scanning the photo without it being a PDF? Will PDF help me to organize and send large numbers of photos to family via disk?

    I prefer not to save them as PDF, since that limits the ability to edit and play with the images directly in the future.  The scanner settings should have an option to save them as image files (JPG, PNG, BMP or similar).

    I prefer the JPG format. It tends to be a smaller file size and allows a lot more programs to edit and modify the pictures if needed.
