Easily Convert Centimeters (cm) To Pixels (px) For Printing, Designing Or Any Other Needs

Using our cm to px converter is very easy and straightforward. Begin by choosing the right mode for your conversion. Our tool has two modes for web designing & for printing.

After selecting the mode right for your use case, just enter the cm value you want to convert in centimeters box or width and height in cm boxes if you are in printing mode.

No need to press the convert button or take any extra steps as our tool automatically does conversions as you enter the values and the converted values are displayed in the pixel boxes in realtime. Easy-peasy!

There's one more such great feature in our tool—it works both ways! Try entering or changing the px value in the pixel box (or pixel W x H boxes in printing mode) and the converted value in cm will be displayed in centimeters box.

TIP: In Printing mode, enter the width and height in centimeters of the paper on which you want to print your design. Then, enter the PPI, and the tool will display the exact pixel dimensions your design should be of to be printed on that paper at your desired resolution (PPI).

Conversions as per 300 PPI |

To do conversions for other centimeter, pixel or ppi values use the tool above.

Centimeter To Pixel Conversion Formula:

Pixel = Centimeter x PPI / 2.54

To convert cm to px, simply multiply the centimeter value you want to convert with the PPI (resolution) and then divide it by 2.54. For example, if an image is 3.5 cm wide and has a resolution of 300 PPI, the calculation in pixels would be: 3.5 cm x 300 PPI ÷ 2.54 = 413.39 px

As you just saw, doing this math is pretty easy. You just have to put the values in the formula and do simple multiplication and division.

But, how did we take the PPI value as 300 in the above example? Should you also take the value of PPI as 300 to do your cm to pixels conversion just like we did?

No, PPI is not fixed and it depends on what you are doing cm to px conversion for—it can be a graphic that you are designing to add to your website, or a picture you want to print, or anything else.

For every use case there's a unique PPI value that you have to decide based on how sharp or large you want an image or design to look.

We have explained what PPI/DPI is and how you can determine it for your conversion in detail on our px to cm converter page.

If you don't know about it or are confused, we would highly recommend you to read and understand it before proceeding with conversions.

Lastly, we hope that our cm to pixel converter tool and the related information on this page helped you to accurately convert values from cm to px for your needs.

It depends on the DPI—at 200 DPI 3.5 x 4.5 cm is equal to 275.59 x 354.3 pixels, at 300 dpi it's 413.39 x 531.5 pixels, at 600 dpi it comes to 826.77 x 1062.9 pixels and at 96 dpi it's 132.2 x 170 pixels.

6 * 3 cm at 100 dpi equals to 236.2 x 118.1 pixels, at 200 dpi it equals to 472.4 x 236.2 pixels and at 300 dpi it equals to 708.6 x 354.3 pixels.

3.5 cm by 1.5 cm at 96 dpi equals to 132.2 x 56.6 pixels, at 100 dpi it comes to 137.8 x 59 pixels and at 200 dpi it comes to 275.5 x 118.1 pixels.

Yes, 300 DPI is considered as a high resolution and is clear enough for most use cases. However, if you are taking a print out of an intricate art or printing a cover for magazine, you may want to use a higher DPI value.
