  I am looking for suggestions on free open source software I can download to my Ubuntu based Linux Mint PC that is for scanning pictures downloaded off the internet for virus and other malicious features.

Technically, Punchy71, one of the joys of Linux o/s is the no need for an antivirus on your system. However I have read that it is not a bad idea for the simple reason that most Linux users do have some bit of Windows on their system. Of the list I have posted the link to, I have used avast!, on Windows systems, and have been pretty happy with it.
