Often users need to get a "regular image" from a satellite image. This means converting a .tif or .jp2 file into a .jpeg or .png file. This can be done using QGIS. If you have not installed this on your computer, you can download it freely here.
Download image from OnDemand
1. Find the image you are looking to convert in EarthAI OnDemand.

Convert image to png in QGIS
1. Once the asset is downloaded, open it in QGIS.
2. Zoom to the area you are looking to show in your converted image.
3. Select the Project / Import/Export / Export Map to Image... menu option
4. Press the Map Canvas Extent to capture the entire area shown in the map view, or Press Draw on Canvas to manually select an area to export.
5. Set the resolution to the desired value. The pixel count will be shown below so be cautious, a very high resolution image can create a very big file. Typically it is good to start with 72 and see if the output image is good enough for your use case.
6. Press save and save the file to the desired directory. Default is png, but you can also select jpeg.
7. Inspect output image.
