Primitive to photosize ration?

Silly question really, as there are other ways to do this

So let’s say I have a photo I want to use as a background via a primitive plane.
The photo is oh… let’s say 1200 x 850 pixels
So the magic question is, what size do you make the primitive plane, since it doesn’t seem to have a pixel setting.
Is there a thread or tutorial somewhere that explains the sizing of such things?

Thanks!  smile

NeilV did a tutorial I think on using Planes as a Background.

When creating a Plane, I just use the pixel size as the measurement, in either Metres or Centimeters, depending on the scale of the scene.

Never thought of that Jimmy cheers…doh!

I do it by eye mostly. smile If it needs to be precise I use Blender which has a nice function to match a plane to an image. I then export the plane as an OBJ.
