Measuring a Rough Opening

I have some 50 year old casement windows that I want to replace with new energy efficient models. How do I measure for the rough opening?

It's a little hard to explain how to measure, because there are so many variables- most depend on exactly what type of window you currently have. It's usually something that an experienced installer and/or salesman has to actually SEE in order to know where to measure. I doubt I can describe it unless you can provide some closeup pictures of the windows in question, inside and out.
