Quick tip 5 – Change unit measurements in Photoshop

This is part five of the Photoshop quick tip series. In this tip you will learn how to quickly change the unit of measurements in Photoshop. The default measurement for Photoshop is in Pixels, but the other measurements include: inches, centimetres, millimetres, points, picas and percent.

There are two ways you can quickly change the measurements. Firstly, you need to have an image open in Photoshop, checkout quick tip 3 to find out how to open a file quickly in PS.

You now need to open up the ‘Rulers view’ by using the shortcut key Ctrl + R. The rulers view is displayed at the top of the image display screen as shown below.

Now move your mouse over the rules view and you should get the following drop down menu seen below.

You should now be able to quicklu change through the different measurements in Photoshop.
