Long message...I hope the info is useful:
VOB (as you know) is the DVD Video format.
You cannot convert Video to a photo format like
..jpg and recover your original image files.
Your best bet (of course) would be to remember
where you saved the original scans.
One method (and probably not nearly what you are
hoping for) would be to make screenshots (captures)
from the video.
The freeware VLC Media Player can play your
VLC Media Player
To setup for your screen captures...open VLC and
go to...Tools / Preferences / Video button / Video
In the directory field...Browse to and select a folder
to save your captures in. (for example...you could
create a new folder on your desktop and select it)
At...Prefix...check the box...Sequential numbering.
At...Format...choose JPEG or PNG.
Finally.....left click the 'Save' button.
Now...Play the video and pause by pressing your
Spacebar when you see a screen you wish to capture.
To capture the screen...type... Shift+S
Press spacebar to advance to the next photo...
One more possibility might be 'Solution B' in the
'Extract Still Photographs from Wedding DVD Videos
