|Description:||Size Wise uses “forced perspective” photography to invite users to reason proportionally--if they want to make something appear half as big on the screen, they need to place it twice as far away. Measurement, data, and writing functions in the tool help users create their own forced perspective photographs while manipulating and noticing ratios and proportions that connect the size of the images on the screen with their distance from the camera.
