Many of these just _are_ JPEGs or TIFFs from the start: photographs of 
apparatus, of notable people or events, of experimental results, that 
has been gathered from archives, other publications, or the web (Google 
Images).

Some are scans, e.g. titles-and-abstracts from important papers or 
journal articles, material from books (selected paragraphs or 
illustrations), material from archives, things that I've scanned or that 
are available online only in scanned form.

Anything I can create in vector format (from Mathematica, Illustrator, 
TeX) or type in myself as text, I do.
