When I try to apply a downloaded GIS satellite (t=rimage to Quantum, it doesn't seem to open properly. There must be a step-by step description on how this would be done effectively. Can anyone tell me where to find it?

Welcome to GIS SE! Can you provide more details? What satellite images are you working with? What file formats are you using? –  R.K. Dec 7 '12 at 2:39
Also if you can't explain what is the problem you could add a screenshot of your raster in question. –  nickves Dec 7 '12 at 11:23
Oh! You folks are there!!! I checked this shortly after I posted and nothing...And you all checked things in early December. I will get an image out to you this week if I can and we can figure this out--I have been killing myself over it! –  Mila Jan 23 '13 at 22:37
Hey, I finally got it!!! Some raster layers from a friend (Katie Callaghan, GIS Specialist at NH Fish&Game no less) opened right up in a "New Project". I will add some shapefiles with my own GPS points as soon as I can to keep you posted maybe I can show off posting an image on this forum. Still no satellite images though, I will try that that too. –  Mila Feb 20 '13 at 23:04
