I recently updated to Photoshop CS5 and I noticed that "Pixels" is not an option to re-size to. I only see percent, inches, cm, mm, points and picas. I have also made sure that I have set all of my units to pixels in "my preferences". Am I missing something?

Image Size options

In the Image Size option menu, you will not have pixel as a unit in the "Document Size" pane. But the pane above it, "Pixel Dimensions" you have a choice of using px or % as units.

In other words: think Document Size as the physical, print size and Pixel Dimensions as its digital representation on the screen. Moreover, if one designs for the screen, Document Size shouldn't be a concern. –  koiyu Jul 1 '11 at 17:02
    
Perfect. Thank you. (feeling stupid and embarrassed that I didn't pick up on this) –  Nigel Jul 1 '11 at 17:20

Of course, no-one else here has ever been similarly embarrassed. <cough, cough> –  Alan Gilbertson Jul 1 '11 at 19:29
