Units & Rulers Preferences

1.
Choose a unit of measure from the Units: Rulers pop-up menu for the horizontal and vertical rulers that display in the image window. (Choose View menu > Show Rulers to display the rulers.)

Choose the same or a different unit for Type from the Type pop-up menu.

Tip

If you change the measurement units for the Info palette , the ruler units will change in this dialog box also, and vice versa.



Tip

You can also open this dialog box by double-clicking either ruler in the image window.

2.
Enter Column Size: Width and Gutter values to help the Image Size and Canvas Size commands fit images for the appropriate column width in a layout program.

3.
For Point/Pica Size, click PostScript (the default) to have Photoshop use the newfangled method for calculating the points-to-inch ratio, or click Traditional to use the pre-desktop publishing ratio.
