APPARENT SIZE

the size of a stimulus according to the perceiver. This depends on many factors in addition to the size of the stimulus on the perceiver's retina - most importantly, the perceived distance between the perceiver and the object. See also size constancy.

APPARENT SIZE: "The apparent size of an object is not the actual physical size, but rather an estimate of the size, according to the perceiver. "
