A method of determination of the size distribution of nanocrystals from X-Ray diffraction data will be presented. A brief introduction into experimental techniques will be given and the essential theoretical issues will be explained. A practical demonstration of the data analysis with an application of freely available software will be carried out. Limitations of the method and possible pitfalls will be discussed. Some particularly peculiar and challenging cases of data analysis will be presented.
