Anyone familiar with the use of the open-source remote sensing software Opticks? Im new to opticks, I load GeoEye1 imagery but it displayed as greyscale. It supposed to be displayed as bands combination true colour or false colour composites.

Thank you Simbamangu. So any answer to my question? – Stanley Anak Suab Apr 3 '13 at 9:20

Just do right click on the image and then select Properties:

right click on the image

If all the Display bands indicate the same band number the image will display in grayscale, so you can change it to the band combination you need.

properties RGB band combination

You can get more information about Opticks in this site:
