How to convert Inches to Pixels for Printing?

To convert inches to pixels for printing at a specific DPI (dots per inch), you can use the formula Pixels = Inches × DPI.

Start by knowing or measuring the width and height of the image or document you want to print in inches and also DPI (dots per inch).

Calculate the width and height in pixels using the formula:

  • Width in inches × DPI = Width in pixels
  • Height in inches × DPI = Height in pixels
  • For example, if you have an image that is 4 inches wide and 6 inches tall, and you want to print it at 300 DPI:

    • Width in pixels = 4 inches × 300 DPI = 1200 pixels
    • Height in pixels = 6 inches × 300 DPI = 1800 pixels

    So, your image would need to be printed at a resolution of 1200 pixels wide by 1800 pixels tall to maintain the same physical size on paper at 300 DPI.
