Am having an issue with the QGIS Georeferencer - I start with a fresh canvas but for some reason, the points always end up shifting a great amount (see screenshot).
I've double checked my points, and they are all correct - but you can see in the background, the referenced map image is upside down, and mirrored. Is there something I'm doing wrong? I'm converting a project from ArcMap and never experienced an issue like this there so I'm not sure as to where to go to with this problem.
It seems my error starts with 4 or more points, 3 or less and technically the points work but QGIS georeferencer gives out an error stating that it is "not solvable". BUT the points are exactly where they need to be (see below)
Whereas, when I click to include the fourth point, which is in no means drastically different or wrong (as I've tried three different locations just to test the 4+ error theory), the georeferencer calculates that the points need to shift thousands of points away (see below)
Below is my transformation settings window. One thing to note, after picking the same exact points, with the same exact transformation settings... it all of a sudden works. Not sure why, or how, but I'll take what I can get. Maybe it is something in my settings? (But again, I didn't change anything).
