The grids in Excel Read 8.09 and 98 pixels

How can I calculate adjusting the Column spaced to inches to so I then type in label information and then print the Avery

Labels ok them on the HP Ink jet Printer

I have package Avery pre glued 2-3/4 x 1″ Avery labels 33 to a page but no template

Can you help bye converting pixels to inches ? Thank you

Hi Jeanne,

First off you need to know your printer DPI. Most printers have 300 DPI. If that’s the case, you can use Inches to Pixels conversion tool, select 300DPI and convert your sizes to pixels.

I want to draw an image of size 9x7cm on samsung LED pc monitor, whose resolution is set to 1920×1080. Pc monitor size is diagonally 21.5 inch.

I want to calculate as how many pixels is needed to draw that image.

Also I mean that image size is in cm, i need to mention that size in pixels

Can anyone help ?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Thrushitha,

First you need to find out your monitor DPI, either by using DPI Finder from above, or looking into your pc settings.

Then you can convert Inches to Centimeters to match your requirements.

As an example, if your monitor has 60 DPI, then your sizes in pixels will be approximately: 213×165 px.

If i go through an expression (which i found on some discussion forum) , i get 102 as dpi. But if i go through this site in measuring red bar i found 3.6inch = 83 dpi.

Expression what i followed is

Resolution set = 1920 * 1080

= 16 : 9

we have width = 16x and height = 9x

Screen measurement along diagonal = 21.5 inches

Therefore, we have (16x * 16x) + (9x * 9x) = 21.5 * 21.5

337x^2 = 462.25

x^2 = 1.37166

Therefore x = 1.17118

Hence width =16x = 18.7389

height = 9x = 10.5406

Therefore Area = width * height

area = 197.5192878

PPI = Sqrt of ((1920*1080)/(area))

= 102 pixels

I found this expression in one of the sites when they are speaking about DPI calculation

Can you please suggest me, which value is right

n1nj@ says

Hi Thrushitha,

I don’t really understand what you want to accomplish…

You want to draw an image of 9x7cm that will be displayed on your monitor, or that size should be when printed?

If you draw the picture at 9x7cm on your screen, then display it on a projector or another display, the sizes will change, because the other devices might not have the same DPI as the monitor you’re working on.

I am sorry for confusing you. First i need to know what is the dpi of my monitor. (Samsung LED monitor, model : S22F355FHW). Then after knowing it i want to know how many pixels are used to draw an image say 9 x 7 cm.

If i know what is dpi, then it ll be easy to caluculate number pixels for my respective images

To know DPI, one method was to use that RED BAR in this website and another was by using expression.

By red bar, i measured red bar using scale which resulted in 3.6inch = 83 dpi.

By using expression, (explained in earlier chat), i got 102 dpi.

I want to know which is right.

n1nj@ says

The formula is correct. I tested it with two monitors and a mobile phone display, and it gives me the exact result as when using the measurements of the red bar.

Are you sure you have the measured the red bar correctly in inches? For a DPI of 102, it should have between 2.92 and 2.94 inches.

on led monitor with 1920 x 1080 resolution set.

n1nj@ says

Honestly I don’t know. Something is not right… Can you check your resolution using a tool like this one? https://www.whatismyscreenresolution.com/

thrushitha says

I went through that link and found my monitor resolution is 1536 x 864. when I use this value in my expression, i find PPI = 82 , which is almost equivalent to this red bar calculation 83.

In my system configuration, it is showing resolution as 1920x 1080 at 125%.

but with 100%, that link shows 1920 x 1080 and red bar measures about 2.9 inch thats equal to 103 dpi. whixh is equal to my expression calculation also. now i got clear idea about ppi and resolution.

U helped me a lot.

Thanks a ton sir

No problem. Glad I could help, and you solved your problem.

The DPI varies from one device to another, so that’s why you’re getting different results.

Also, you should calculate based on the output device DPI (in this case, the printer).

I don’t see dpi on my resizing, just % and pixels. Usually, submissions are supposed to be at 1920 pixels minimum, but that makes my image HUGE according to this converter. Under properties on my photo, it does show it set at 300dpi, but of course I don’t know how to change that, or if it matters, since the image will be viewed on the judges computer. Can anyone help me using very simple terms?

n1nj@ says

Hi Coleen,

According to Inches to Pixels converter, your image should have 450px on the longest side.

The process I followed: Selected 75 DPI from the dropdown menu, entered 4 in the Inches box and the calculator showed me 450px as the result.

You can use an app like Gimp to change the photo resolution to 72. See here how to do it: http://cdn.makeuseof.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/gimp-change-dpi.gif

Your website is really helpfull.

But please can you please tell me the formula of how you calculate dpi

Jeffrey says

Hi Fahim, glad you enjoy it.

About your question..

The formula to calculate pixels into inches is:

Pixels / DPI = InchesFrom this formula we can extract DPI as:

DPI = Pixels / InchesHope it helps. If you have further questions, I’m here.

I can easily convert my JPEG image (that average 5+ MB File size) to a TIFF image, with an average of 15+ MB File size, but how do you size the picture to a print size of 8″ x 10″, and at 300 DPI?

Jeffrey says

Hi Michael,

I don’t understand what do you want to accomplish.

You can resize the picture using a photo editing app like Adobe Photoshop or if you’re on a Mac we have an article on our blog about resizing photos on Mac OS X with three default apps https://www.ninjaunits.com/blog/resize-images-mac/

Hope it helps,

I checked my Photoshop install and you cannot change to inches. You can at most to change to millimeters.

Photoshop menu > Preferences > Units & Rulers > Change to Millimeters.

You could use an online tool to convert millimeters to inches I think.

tell me what my DPI is ? It must be more than 100.

Thanks

Jeffrey says

Hi Nagaraj.

If I’m right, 2

^{7}/_{8}” should be 2.88 inches in decimals. In this case, your DPI is 104.You could use the DPI calculator from the left of the table for uncommon measurements like this one.

Hope it helps.

Hi Shantal,

Your DPI value is 150.

Stay tuned, I will release the new version of the converter soon and you will have the option to calculate the DPI value by yourself.

Have a fantastic year,

Hi Joann,

Your

DPIis114.For the moment the converter doesn’t know how to convert any other DPI’s than the preset ones. I will update the converter soon, and you should be able to calculate the DPI value by yourself and type other DPI values to convert your dimensions into inches.

Tell me your values in pixels and I’ll do the conversion for you.

Thank you for your feedback,

Theoretically, you can. Just be sure you have specified the correct DPI.
