Calibrating Images: What’s Involved

For LifeSizer to work, we need to know the physical dimension of an object (or a particular element of an object) within an image so that we can calculate the pixels per actual life size inch. This data is sent to our servers where we use it in conjunction with the digital resolution data inherent in all digital pictures (e.g., 200 pixels wide by 300 pixels tall) to then calculate the pixels per actual life size inch for that image.
