Measure (in pixels) Earth
1) For simple processing softwares :
Calculate scale factor Z to be able to resize the Earth to place it in the Sun image ...
Z = DSKm * RTPix / DTKm / RSPix * 100
DSKm = 1 390 000 (Sun diameter Km)
DTKm = 12 756 (Earth diameter Km)
RSPix = Sun diameter measured (in pixels)
RTPix = Earth diameter measured (in pixels)
Now open Earth picture in your favorite processing software and resize it to Z %
(see result in second image of this page ...)
2) Comment from Pierre Vasey :
" "This can then be simplified further if using an image processor such as
Photoshop which can resize images in pixels. The physical ratio is
fixed, so the required Earth image size in pixels becomes the value
given by DTKm*RSpix/DSKm. So actually RSpix*12756/1390000"
