Screen sizes & Fit on screen
Please excuse another very basic question, but it's something which confuses me.
What's the actual difference between Fit on Screen, Actual Pixels and Print size.?
Is the Print size the actual look (size ) of what the final printed product will be. Has the fit on screen size anything to do with the print size?
So, what's Actual pixels.
Looking forward to your expert advice.
Thanks in advance.
Re: Screen sizes & Fit on screen
The answers are also in PS help.
Here is the short version....
- Fit On Screen: simply scales the image to fit on the current screen so you can see all of it;
- Actual Pixels: zooms to a value of 100%. Important sometimes to see realistic representations of color in the image. At other zoom %'s, PS must do some approximating, which can throw off your perception of the colors, etc.
- Print Size: zooms to a scale that accurately represents your print size (i.e. 4x6) on the screen regardless of your screen resolution setting. Basically, it tries to make it look just exactly like the print would turn out.
