I am trying to find the sum of all pixels in a raster, as shown below:

How do I do this using QGIS?

"Raster layer statistics" in the processing toolbox:

  1. Select layer
  2. Select band
  3. See results

You can also save resulting stats into HTML file


I do recommend you use R and RStudio to do this. You can install the package raster and do that in a really easy way. Just read the documentation about that.

    The OP specified that QGIS was the targeted platform. If someone asks about R, then providing a solution using R would be appropriate, but giving an RTFM for a different platform isn't appropriate.
