Scale to distance

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Having hard time trying to refer my design /fleece jacket branding/ to real world dimensions.

Broider/?/ machine handles properly area of 28x28cm, need to scale my jacket image to the dimensions close to real ones /at least/,

to have my design also real scaled. How to handle such subject? ;)

What about using the height of the fleece as a datum point and resizing the height to the real world height, obviously keeping aspect ratio on, else scale the fleece until the design looks right over the fleece.

Would be an optimal solution IF:

I could draw a straight distance/a 2D vector/, connecting two reference points on an image, drawing, whatever and then assign/define/ my desired length to that distance,

this way whole document/a group/  selected objects/ could be rescaled respectively ??
