    In Adobe software, 1 pixel is equal to 1 point. For text sizes, there's no need to change it.

    Hum... The pt -> px size is resolution-dependent. A 6 pt text at 72 ppi is smaller than a 6 pt text at 300 ppi in pixel size.

  • Not really. 6pt is 6pt. The print size of varying ppi documents is different, but the type sizes aren't. See Here.

    @SOIA. That is not true on the web. 6pt is like 60% larger than 6px. See for yourself: jsfiddle.net/p2ptw084

Go to Edit > Preference > Unit & Rulers and change type points to pixels


You also can right click into text input and select unit. This is good if you want change value only for one property and keep units in other fields.

Or you can simply rewrite "pt" to "px"

Fastest way to unit settings is doubleclick on ruler.

First Open Photoshop,enter image description here Go to Edit Menu > scroll down click Preference > Unit & Rulers and change type points to pixels

    1 pt = 1/72 inches. Size of 1 px depends on what your document PPI is set to. And this boys and girls is why we set documents that are meant for digital only consumption to 72 PPI ad then we get one pixel = 1 point which is convenient due to the underlying math engine.
