Good Morning,

I need to be able to see the pixel dimensions while I'm cropping.  I clicked on the "Info" pallet and it shows this in inches, however, I didn't see how to change it to pixels.  For some website work I need to set images to specific pixel sizes and yet be able to move around the image to crop where I need at these dimensions.

I also did a search here and in PS help - nothing found.

Thanks for your help,

Set the Mouse co-ordinates to pixels in the drop-down menu in the Info palette.

It shows up in inches in the Info panel because the Rulers are set to show inches, just change the Rulers to show pixels. Easy way would be to just right+click on the rulers and select Pixels but you can also change it from Edit->Preferences->Units & Rulers (and from some other places as well)

Thanks to both you and John for the replys!  I knew it was something simple!  I'll use the info palette dropdown.

Thanks again - this forum rocks!

Since photoshop cs6 the Pixel Dimensions while cropping can be shown in the document area in addition to the Info panel.
