Need to measure graphics? Here’s a great tool . . .
Great Find: Pixel Ruler v3.1
Target Audience: All Windows users
Content: This week I want to tell you about a tool I use a lot. It’s a virtual ruler for your desktop that you can use to measure pixels. What are pixels? They are the tiny colored squares that make up a web page. It helps to communicate with others if you speak the same language.
I also worked in the print world, and it’s an adjustment to switch from thinking about inches to measuring in pixels. So I looked for help. There’s plenty of tools out there, but this one works great, the price is right, and it’s simple. Click the screen shot to take you there.
Here are three things I like about Pixel Ruler:
- It’s handy for reading large tables and spreadsheets.
- You can change the color of the skin.
- It’s free.
The next time someone asks you the size of a banner or graphic, use a ruler that floats on your screen. Keep a shortcut to Pixel Ruler handy so you can open it quickly. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
Stay tuned… next week is another tool that’s free!
