Did you read the documentation, or look at the settings icon? Specifically, option 3 where it says specifically that only PDF's can be used.

I think you meant pdftoppm - and it really should be said that this utility does not by default convert to JPEG, but there is an option to do so.

OP: read 'man pdftoppm'

Or use a different scanning software.
