I am trying do add georeferenced aerial images (jpg files) to my QGIS. They do not install properly. I either get a grey rectangle or bands of colour (mostly blue) that appear where the image should be.

Also, if I solve this problem, I then need to install all the images. Is there a quick way to insert multiple images from the host file?

Further info following comments: I am using QGIS2.0.1 I have attached a screenshot of what the image looks like after adding to QGIS. A screenshot of the properties (style) layer.

  • Can you include a screenshot of the Properties -> Styles tab of the layer? Otherwise it is hard to tell what goes wrong on your side. – AndreJ Oct 5 '15 at 5:00
  • What kind of JPEG image? What does gdalinfo show for a representative image? Which version of QGIS? – BradHards Oct 5 '15 at 6:17
  • Virtual raster can help you to insert several jpg files as one layer. See gdalbuildvrt – Zoltan Oct 5 '15 at 7:48
  • Can you add a screenshot of the layers metadata? Or give a download link, or upload a sample file somewhere? – AndreJ Oct 6 '15 at 3:53

If you can open a lot of .jpg files press "add raster layer" then filter to .jpg files and select all with Ctrl + A . Unless you want to merge them look at @ Zoltan comment or use "Raster -> Miscellaneous -> Merge"
