Georeference question

Noklu Global Mapper UserTrusted User
This question is more out of curiosity. I have been using the manual georeference image feature with very good results. This feature is REALLY excellent for tax maps, sketches, etc. When an image is georeferenced, does GM do a "best fit and leave the image untouched? OR, does it perform "rubber-sheeting" of the image. If it is rubber-sheeted, when the image is opened in photoshop is it the same as the original, or has it been permanently altered by GM? Sorry for the rambling question.

    Global Mapper doesn't alter the original image, it rubber-sheets on-the-fly. If you export to a new image then you will get a new image with the rubber-sheeting applied to a new image that doesn't need rectification.
