Tips & Tricks: How to measure pixel width on your blog?

On a blog, like any web page, everything is measured in 'pixels', the smallest unit of measure on a screen. So if you work with the layout of your blog, you need to have a precise idea of the pixel height and width of the different elements.


The other day, I was tweaking my blog, an had to measure the size of images and columns. Painstaking. Until I found Pixel Ruler, a freeware from Tahionic.

Pixel Ruler displays a simple ruler, either vertically or horizontally, you can grab and move around your screen.

You drag the ruler as an overlay over your screen and 'hold' it over any open window. It has a transparent colour making measuring different bits and pieces fast and precise. You can easily shorten or expand the ruler.
