Summary:

• There are various visual cues for scale, such as relative size compared to known objects.
• Linear perspective also establishes scale by relating visual size with distance to the viewer.
• Visual cues are not always sufficient due to lack of visual contrast, ambiguous sizes (as in fantasy worlds), distorted perspective, etc.
• Physical cues, such as the timing of motion, also establish size and scale.
