I'm recently new to QGIS, and have been using it to georeference some photos for a physics thing. Sadly I seem to have a pretty poor handle on using TIF files with it.
When I load up a jpg image, it looks the same as when I load it up in say paint, but when I try to georef a TIF image it becomes very discolored and more difficult to use.
I would like to know if there is any way around this such that I can use the original TIF image to georeference. Right now, I convert it into jpg format, georeference it, save my points and then load up the weird looking TIF format with those points to get a georeferenced TIF image. I'm worried that I'm losing data when doing this though due to the weird colors of the image. It's very important that I keep as much data as possible, hence why I can't just convert to jpg anyways.
