If you don’t get results with the first method do the second method…
If you want to see better, use MACRO before taking your picture…
If you want to see better, stand in much better light before taking your picture…
If you want to see better, turn the FLASH on your camera…(you will have to pull back a little, not so close up, so the light from the Flash bulb won’t flare the image & give you a giant white yellow circle where you are trying to see…

ipHone cameras actually take a decent picture…You can download free camera apps that help your iPhone take an even better picture…Some have Macro, flash, stabilization etc…This can help an ok picture become much much better…
You will get better at this…Take your time & try again…
Hold a measuring tape near to your lump before you take the picture-this will help you gauge size over time…(But you will get a “feel” for size changes just visually…Keep your pictures & compare them over time…)

You may get different results (your results don’t look like mine)because your original picture was taken with a different camera, different lighting, different lens…That’s ok!
“So, yes, the quirkiness seems to depend on the original photograph…But what you are seeing is indeed your lump…The picture I used was an old one of mine-I had taken the photo using a Sony DSC-T100 point & shoot digital 8 megapixel camera, with Macro on, & Flash on, about 4-5 inches away so the flash wouldn’t flare the picture…Tracking size changes for me was a comparative thing I did mostly visually…I’d take a picture, edit, then after taking a supplement or walking far, I’d redo the picture the next day…
You can see size change yourself just by looking at the difference between the two pictures…
Even if the pictures are not identical, you get a feel for “it got bigger” it got smaller” etc…

The less lazy way to do this is to hold a measuring tape to your breast(or wherever) & somehow get it into the picture…This is harder to do yourself…(You need 3 hands)…Theoretically you could draw a small measuring tape onto a piece of white cardboard & tape it to your breast , then take the picture yourself…Or if you can grab a husband(or a friend, a wife, someone nice), he can hold the measuring tape, or you can hold it, while he takes a picture…

There are programs that measure things in pictures for you, but I have not found a Macro one yet…I will look again..!”

Or…Do this…(If you don’t have Photoshop don’t fret…There are many free photo editors that will stick two pictures together, or lay one picture on top of another(& you adjust transparency so you can see thorugh one to the other…ie: see lump through image of measuring tape…)

“To find the size on a photo taken with a microscope you use the following technique:
Take a photo of the object.
Without adjusting magnification take a picture of a ruler
Import both photos to photoshop(Sari’s note:or some free online editor)
Superimpose the photo of the ruler over the photo of the object using a opacity of around 50%
You can now measure the length of the object.”

I got this (photographing a measuring tape)idea & excerpt from here http://blog.perunature.com/2013/03/how-to-measure-distance-to-object-in.html
