Image Chain

Just got finished watching a video on using the the Image chain option when displaying a dem.  I am using version 2014 and I cannot for the life of me, fine the image chain option.  Any ideas?

Re: Image Chain

I am not sure was that feature in 2014 release yet, but I agree it is fairly well hidden feature. File-Open-Raster as Image Chain gives you the Image Chain tools in Multispectral/Panchromatic Tab. So Image Chain is in nutshell just a new way to open data and unless you do not open data in right way you never get the tools.


I agree - it took a while to find logics but when you found it it starts to make sense

Re: Image Chain

...and when you have found it the first time (File / Open / Raster as Image Chain) right-click over the button and select "Add to Quick Access Toolbar", so that you have easy access to the option in the future.

Re: Image Chain

Hi William,


The Raster as Image Chain option was not available in ERDAS IMAGINE 2014. It was a new feature in ERDAS IMAGINE 2015 and there are more options for image chains available in ERDAS IMAGINE 2016.
