Elevation legend

I really need to see an elevation legend on the JPG output for the colourized elevation profile maps.

They are pretty much useless as a deliverable without the legend being on them.

I would absolutely love to include these for clients that we have but as it stands right now they don’t make any sense and I don’t have the time to manually write out a key for every map I’m going to be making.

Maybe there is a way to do this that I’m just missing. But it appears to me as it is right now that the legend is only available on the browser.

I have used the QGIS software you mentioned to create a contoured map but I can't quite figure out how to apply a legend for the changes in elevation on there. Would you happen to know how to do this?

If you do a little searching, there are various tuts online for how to generate a legend in QGIS.

MME generates a legend for the DSM hosted on their site.  I'm not sure why that legend can't easily be added to the downloadable files as well, but there must be a reason.
