To install and run Relief Shader for Free :

Relief Shader is a stand alone product designed to produce beautiful shaded relief images from digital elevation models (DEM). A shaded relief image is created by using a computer-generated artificial light source to illuminate the elevation data and produce a pattern of light and shadows. Slopes facing the light appear bright, while those facing away are shaded. On flatter surfaces, the pattern of light and shadows can reveal subtle features in the terrain.

Relief Shader

Using Relief Shader the process of creating a shaded relief image from a DEM dataset is intuitive and straightforward: Open the input DEM dataset then click the 'OK' button to generate either a a Geotiff shaded relief image. All the parameters are provided by default. They can be, however, changed by the user.
