I was wondering if anyone has successfully been able to perform an image pansharpening within QGIS? I have utilized OpenEV to do this, but the results have been very pixelated.

Any info would be great.

I know that the ORFEO Tool Box has some handy pansharpening tools which should, in theory, be available via the SEXTANT plugin. I have not gone this route so I might be wrong. Check it out and see what you can find.

I did read that. I have Sextant installed on my Windows 7 machine, and I do not see any option for ORFEO Toolbox. I am installing Ubuntu on my machine to see if it will be available on Ubuntu. From what I saw, it looked like the toolbox was available from Ubuntu. – Ryan Garnett Feb 28 '13 at 16:28
