English translation:to get a pretty good picture (idea/image) of something,
Explanation:
Again, working it out for myself as well. It seems like someone gets a pretty good picture of something. Maybe a bit more context would help (at least me) but perhaps after someone spends some time explaining something, the listener (either through understanding or their own powers of deduction) gets a pretty good idea of what the speaker is referring to. Good luck.
