If the image is only being 'squashed' when opening it up in WinAPRS then the
coordinates are off both whatever points you chose on the image.  

I believe for Winaprs the image can be either a .bmp or .gif, I think I read
that it the documentation.  I just made one using a .gif image and it worked

What steps have you done so far in trying to get it to work? (i.e. how did
you find the pixel coordinates of two spots, was it originally drawn to
scale, etc...)

I am having a devil of a time trying to create a map
for a local run event next weekend.  I have an image
but it loads in a shortened squashed up looking
On top of that, the GEO file I made doesn't work
either apparently as the coordinates showing up at the
bottom of the screen are all way off base.
Does anyone have any pointers?
I have tried bmp and jpeg images according to Paint
that I am using to load them to the Images folder for
I had the worst luck with bmps.
If I load the image horizontally it looks better but
it doesnt' line up N and S top to bottom anymore.
