Join Daniel Lieske for an in-depth discussion in this video Size in centimeter or inches, part of Drawing and Painting in Photoshop - The Great Training.
- We are in the New file dialog,…and we'll have a close look at the settings now.…The first thing to set up is the width…and the height of our image,…and we have to determine the unit…in which these dimensions are measured.…Centimeters or inches are often preset here,…and we can leave it that way for the time being.…It's important to note that, if we set our image dimensions…in centimeters or inches, this does say nothing…about the amount of pixels our image will consist of.…
That's because a pixel does not have a fixed size.…We need an additional setting, the resolution,…in order to define the number of pixels…that will make up our image.…The resolution is defined in pixels per inch,…or also dots per inch, DPI.…And it simply states how many pixels will make…up one inch in our image.…Let's have a look at an example…to see the relation between pixels and resolution now.…
Let's say we have an image that is one inch wide…and one inch high, and we set the resolution…to 100 pixels per inch, this will result…in a digital image that will be 100 pixels wide…
