Integral imaging is one of the most promising techniques for delivering three-dimensional content. Most processing tasks usually require prior knowledge of the size and positions of the elemental images that comprise an integral image. In this paper we propose an automated method for calibrating the acquisition setup, by applying a preprocessing stage to an acquired integral image. The skew angle is extracted and the size and positions of the elemental images are accurately determined. For these purposes a method is developed to automatically identify an elemental image lattice that best matches the acquired integral image.
