Georeferencing with QGIS 2.12


1. Add GDAL Georeferencer in Manage Plugins
2. Use add control point tool, and Map Canvas option to create control points
3. Transform the image and load to map view

Because the Georefencer in QGIS works by switching back and forth to the Map Canvas, please see the video linked above for an explanation of the process.
