Abstract : The repeatibility of agreement among judges for visual appraisal was fairly good for body fatness; the correlations were 0.65. However, the agreement on muscle development was poor on our first estimate 0.27. Frame which is the parameter that is usually most difficult to describe showed a relation of 0.36. A method for making visual appraisals of frame, muscle, and body fat from photographs is under development. Experiments with 8 in. x 10 in. black and white enlargements indicate that color slides (2 in. x 2 in.) will work best.
