A multiband raster from Landsat 8 band images can be created in ArcMap, either by using the Composite Bands (Data Management) tool or the Composite Bands button in the Image Analysis window.
The instructions provided also apply for compositing other raster datasets, to create a multiband raster.
The instructions provided describe how to create a multiband raster from Landsat 8 band images.
Use the Composite Bands (Data Management) tool.
If working outside a geodatabase, specify the extension of the output raster.
Use the Composite Bands button in the Image Analysis window.
The output of the Image Analysis window is added to the map document as a temporary layer. To save the output layer as a raster dataset, click the Export button on the Image Analysis window and specify the output location of the raster dataset.
The output raster of both options is generated as an RGB composite. To change it to a Stretched value composite, right-click the layer > Properties > Symbology. Under the Show section, select the 'Stretched' option, and specify the band to be used for the stretch values. Input the desired parameters, and click OK.
