Photoshop Ruler Tool

In photoshop Rulers, the measure tool, guides, and grids help you position images or elements precisely across the width or length of an image.

Photoshop Rulers: To display or hide rulers, Choose View > Show Rulers or Hide Rulers. When visible, rulers appear along the top and left side of the active window.

You can change the rulers' zero origin by dragging diagonally down onto the image. The ruler origin also determines the grid's point of origin. To snap the ruler origin to guidelines or gridlines, choose View > Snap to Guides or View > Snap to Grid, before dragging.

To reset the ruler origin to its default value, double-click the upper left corner (origin) of the rulers.

Changing the rulers' settings:

1. Choose File > Preferences > Units & Rulers to open preference window.

2. In the preference window, choose a unit of measurement.

3 .For Width and Gutter, enter values for the column size. You also can change the units.

4. For Point/Pica Size, choose PostScript (72 points per inch) if you are printing to a PostScript device OR Traditional to use printer's 72.27 points per inch.
