Why does my image look stretched either horizontally or vertically in Global mapper?

When I export a map/image to view on Global mapper, it looked stretched horizontally or vertically. My guess is that GM is not reading the coordinates accurately...Any help?

    Select the layer containing your map.
    Press the "Metadata" button.
    Look for datum and projection.  Are these what you expect?
    Also look for the minimum and maximum coordinates.  Are these what you expect?

    Look at Tools | Configuration | Projection
    Look for datum and projection.  Are these what you intend for displaying your map?

    There are several reasons why your data may not look like you expect.  What format is your map file?
