    Dear all,

    first of all, thank you for letting these amazing datasets in the public domain :-)

    Then my question: although the downloaded Tiff files appear properly when I open them with a “normal” image viewer, the default display in Qgis is quite ugly: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/687/naturalearth.jpg/ (this is supposed to be the 50M Cross-blended Hypsometrix Tints with shaded relief and water).

    Any idea how to get the beautiful natural colours?

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    Sorry about that…. I thought that I had already checked the statistics of the image, but I actually hadn’t…

    So, for those who might face the same problem:

    – Right click on the image in the “Layers” panel

    – Go to Properties

    – Go to Style

    – Under “Load min / max values from band”, Select “Actual (slower)”

    – Click on Load

    – Under “Contrast enhancement”, Select “Stretch to MinMax”

    – Clik on “Apply” or “Ok”
