I have 2 50 cm resolution areal photographs in .sid format. How can I export these layers as a regular image format (like tiff or bmp) which I can then open in any simple picture viewer program?

I've tried saving a map, but that reduces the image resolution. I need to resulting image to retain it's original resolution.

Raster -> Convert -> Translate to jpg format should do what you want.

  • thanks, when I did that I got this error message: ERROR 4: C:/../rml-04.sid' does not exist in the file system, and is not recognised as a supported dataset name. GDALOpen failed - 4 C:/../rml-04.sid' does not exist in the file system, and is not recognised as a supported dataset name. – HDunn May 31 '13 at 21:19

    Have you used relative paths? Or some blanks or non-ASCII-characters in the path to the file? You can change the commandline manually before starting the operation. – AndreJ Jun 1 '13 at 5:08
