Creating Templates from photo with a ruler

Matt Blaze has a lot of photos of most of the common lock picks with a ruler. I wanted to create a bunch of templates from his photos.

If I resize the image to match to the size of the horizontal ruler will that create an accurate template or does it need a vertical ruler as well.

For example

Re: Creating Templates from photo with a ruler

If you resize the image without deforming it one ruler is enough. Just constrain proportions while resizing.

Cheers :)
Pictures in my posts are gone due to a policy change by my hosting provider that caught me unprepared. I'll work on that. In the meantime left click the image and open it in new tab, you should be able to see the picture, with a selection of unrelated advertising and banners all around it.

Thank you for that input. I thought it would work but I wanted to double check.

Sir Picks a lot did a very good template of some Falle tools and others . The pdfs print the template's embedded rulers the correct size.

For Falle's picks
