Default Reference Image is wacked

Please forgive my nebish ways (and crappy spelling) but I am getting very frustrated and have no idea how to fix it.

I breifly looked thru the forums and didnt really find this problem. i found a similar issue with a hellicopter pic but i think that this is more sever.

I am attempting to create a plane and use it as a reference image. I create a new lambert, select the file as a color, import the image and click and drag the new lambert from the hypershader window and when i do, i get a crooked image. it is very difficult to model this way.

Ill use this pic of Robocop as an example.

I was thinkin about modeling his head but after importing the image............:headbang: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang:

Ill try and post the image but if it doesn't post, here is a link: http://www.chirp.org/badrobo.jpg

Please, any help would be appreciated. Im running XP Pro, 1gig-o-ram, Nvidia 6800 - im currently downloading the latest drivers.

Thanks,
Micah
