I'm afraid it isn't easy because there are many different parameters which have an influence
on that fact:

- is it a text or graphical content
- if it is text, what fontsize is used
- what elements are part of the background which aren't part of the calculation

Perhaps it would work for you if you just count the pixel which are set if you have a look
at the image produce by convertToImage?
