Pixel Converter

Pixelto.net is an effective and precise online pixel unit converter with additional conversion tables and a lot of useful information related to pixel conversions and the situations when we may need those. You can use our website any time and at any place, whenever you need to convert pixels to cm, pixels to mm, pixels to inches or other units, as well as learn how to convert pixel step by step.

Why do we need a Pixel Converter?

Those who work with pictures and images often operate with three main related features: picture size, resolution, and dimension. The size is something related to megabytes. The resolution and dimension are related to pixels, which are the “cells” of pictures. Sometimes we need to resize our pictures, or in other words, change their dimensions or size, and that’s when we encounter the concepts of DPI (dots or inch) or PPI (pixels per inch). To deal with these concepts, we need a pixel converter, just like the one here.

Below, you can see a few options for converting pixels to various metric units and the other way around. Just choose the type of pixel conversion you need, click the link, and you’ll be transferred to the page where you can successfully perform your operation and convert pixels to the related units. This is the best and the most effective way to do your pixel conversions.

Besides, it is also possible to use the ready tables which contain the results of some popular pixel conversions. All you need to do is just find the related number of pixels (or the unit you want to convert pixels) and see the value of the unit for the conversion type you are looking for. The fast and the most accurate results are guaranteed.
Please feel free to use this website at any occasion you need. We are constantly improving and updating our pixel converter to make it more user-friendly and easier to use. Looking forward to seeing you here again and again!

What is a pixel?

A pixel is the smallest unit that constructs a digital image or graphic, on a video display system. The word pixel comes from the abbreviations of "picture" and "element".

Computer or TV screens display pictures by dividing the screen into millions of pixels sequenced in rows and columns. Each pixel consists of a number of bits that determines the color.

The number of pixels defines the quality of your image. The more pixels per inch your image has, the better your image is (and the higher its resolution is as well). Fewer pixels per inch means lower quality image and lower resolution.

Pixels also play the role of a standard unit for measurement for images, as well as for all kinds of screens. Usually, there are certain requirements as to the dimensions and resolution mentioned by websites or online platforms.

However, sometimes such requirements can be stated in metric units like cm or inches, and that is the time when we may need to use a pixel converter like this one, to convert pixels to cm, pixels to inches, or inches to pixels, cm to pixels, etc.

What is DPI?

The term DPI (dots per inch) is linked with the resolution of an image. It is an arithmetic term that shows how many dots per linear inch the image has. Usually, screens have some standards for resolution. To successfully do pixel conversions, e.g. convert pixels to inches, pixels to cm, etc., we just need to know the dimensions of the image and its resolution. Special tables can be used to make standard size pixel conversions. For example, an image with the dimensions 600 x 1200 with the resolution 300 DPI has dimensions of 2 x 4 inches.
