    1. The jpegs are still in the file, but the FTCU browse tool can only read certain file extensions (the machine formats). To view a jpeg files in FTCU, you can use the Backdrop tool and open the jpeg image that way. Then it will load onto your workspace and you can then trace the image to digitize it.
