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.
