Where I live, we get very
little snow.But this week, the children
in our town were very excited to get a big snow storm.Where we can usually measure our snowballs in
inches, this year, we had so much snow, our snowballs were measured in feet
When you are working in
Photoshop and Elements, you can measure snowballs or any other page element
using the built in rulers.To activate
the rulers, select View > Rulers
from the Menu bar or use the keyboard shortcuts.
In Elements:Press Shift
Ctrl R (Mac: Shift Cmd R) on the keyboard.
In Photoshop: Press Ctrl R (Mac: Cmd R) on the keyboard.
Once you have the rulers
activated, double-click on the ruler
to bring up the Ruler preferences
where you can change the unit of measurement from inches to pixels, cm, mm,
points, picas or percent. To save changes, press OK and return to your document.Using this feature, you can determine the size of page elements in whichever
unit of measurement is most appropriate for your project.
