I'm having some weird problem opening a 16bits geotiff with qgis. In my pc it opens and displays perfectly, but in another pc (with the same version of qgis) it displays all wrong the image getting pixels of several colors without any sense.

enter image description here

Any ideas? Thanks

Might be worth to try gdal-info on both rasters, in each computer. That will probably shed some light on the problem. It's in the Raster->Miscellaneous->Information menu – Micha May 19 '12 at 14:46
Hm, any color table associated with that raster? Maybe in an extra file which didn't get passed along? – Crischan May 20 '12 at 0:41
