Introduction

When you go on a road-trip vacation, you need two things to make the trip a success—good navigational aids (maps), and an understanding of how to measure distances between cities (1 inch equals 100 miles). When you are working with Adobe Photoshop CS, one of the keys to making the journey a success is to understand the navigational and measurement aids available. Photoshop lets you choose a measurement system to fit a specific project. For example, if you're working on images destined for the Web or a monitor, you'll be using pixels as a measurement system.

Conversely, if you're going out to paper, or possibly a 4-color press, you'll likely choose inches or picas. Selecting between different measurement systems does not impact the quality of the final image, only how you measure distance, and understanding how to measure distance helps to make the journey a enjoyable experience.
