How Do I Switch Back to Pixels Instead of "in"?

Recommended Posts

In a few older versions when you would select a part of an image you would see pixels instead of "in" in the status bar.

You're probably not looking into technical explanation, but just in case...


Inches works by scaling based on pixels per inches. 1 inches = 300 pxs in 300 ppi. If you set your document to 96 ppi, 1 inch = 96 pixels. Pixel size aren't actually universal. 1 pixel is meaningless outside of the digital world.

I am away from this forum for undetermined amount of time: If you really need anything related to my PDN plugin or my G'MIC filter within G'MIC plugin, then you can contact me via Paint.NET discord, and mention me.
