I have two rasters of the same place, however they differ 3metres between them. So I want to change the metadata of one of them, to match the coordinates of the other one. (they both use the same projection and coordinate system, its just a raster geolocation issue)

I've read that this can be done using "gdal_translate -a_ullr X-coordinate Y-coordinate" but the command is failing.

Anyone knows an easy/fast way to change metadata coordinates in QGIS?

    What exactly are you entering when you call gdal_translate, and what is the error message you get?
