Did all that and still get "Please enter a number between 0 and 1" when I
click on OK.
For comparison, could someone list successful entries in View>Options>Images
Oh! That is what TopoZone calls "Decimal Degrees." I entered my same
numbers in TopoZone and changed to "Decimal Degrees" and it came up with
36.7811 and 78.4817, close enough.
Thought I would share that info in case anyone else is trying to use a
TopoZone map for some reason.
Now I will work on the degrees wide and degrees tall, and maybe I won't
have to bother you again on this.

It isn't that friendly, I'm afraid.
36 + 46/60 + 52/3600 = 36.7811 degrees
-(78 + 28/60 + 54/3600) = -78.4716 degrees
(you should check my math)
Regarding degrees wide and tall, find the lat/long of the NW corner
of your image. Find same for SE corner. Subtract the latitudes to give
you the height. Subtract the longitudes to get the width. Both
numbers must be positive.
