 is the image produced by a coin kept right on the sensor whose
diameter is officially 21.93mm (appears 22mm to us by accuracy with which
we can measure at home).
The spec says: pixel size = 19 micrometer, 'true (measured) resolution
= 16 linepairs/mm.
The png encoder requires pixels/metre
by pixel size it comes out to be: 52631
by lines per mm it is (explained above): 32000
I measured the count of pixels along diameter line using gimp, by drawing
a line that to a naked eye looks like a diameter. It comes to be 1172.
So pixels/m should be diameterpixels * 1000/21.93 = 53442.77. This is
closer to the one derived from pixel size, but quite far from linepair/mm.
Can someone suggest any better way (preferably some tool) to measure the
diameter of the circle in image  to improve the accuracy?
