In this case, bit depth of rectified image is being promoted to 16 bit which can not be opened in Paint or some other application.


Use the Copy Raster toolset (Data Management) to take all defaults and specify 'force (red-green-blue) RGB' to create the RGB image before or after rectifying. For the Export Layer, do not select NoData pixel depth in the output raster dataset.
