place ruler on one layer and image on an other layer.
and use the ruler in photoshop to set to true size.

....or you could, now I know this is kind of radical and out of the box for you Gen Z folks, take the picture with a ruler in it....

@solutions: Thats a nice idea but I would like an indicator of appropriate size of the board on the ruler..check the refernce image. the darker shade of blue shows the image size.
@pickit2: You said place a ruler...how do you do tht.. thr is one ruler that is for measurement and not part of the image...when u say place a ruler..I guess u mean place an object that looks like a ruler right?..or is thr a feature of photoshop tht i dnt knw abt..

I think pickit means take the picture with a physical ruler next to it
