You will need to know the resolution of your image in terms of dpi (/ppi): dots per inch. That is sometimes stored in the image metadata, but otherwise is something you will have to determine yourself.

You will need to know how many pixels per inch there are. You can do this by drawing a line along some object in your image that has a known size in inches. See attached spatial calibration demo.

Hi, We use the 'imcrop' function to crop an image.
% Read the image
image = imread('your_image.jpg'); % Replace 'your_image.jpg' with the file path of your image
% Get the image size in pixels
[height, width, ~] = size(image);
% Calculate the desired margin size in pixels
marginInches = 1; % 1 inch margin
pixelsPerInch = get(0, 'ScreenPixelsPerInch'); % Get the screen resolution in pixels per inch
marginPixels = round(marginInches * pixelsPerInch); % Convert inches to pixels
% Calculate the crop region
cropRect = [marginPixels + 1, marginPixels + 1, width - 2*marginPixels, height - 2*marginPixels];
% Crop the image
croppedImage = imcrop(image, cropRect);
% Display the cropped image
Hope it helps!
