Pixels to CM Converter

Easily Convert Pixels (px) To Centimeters (cm) For All Your Printing and Designing Needs

1cm = 96px/2.54 in CSS as per W3C standards. In this relation, 2.54 is because 1 inch = 2.54 centimeter, and 96 is nothing but the default PPI for the web. Hence, the tool does conversions based on 96 Pixels Per Inch by default. But if you are doing conversions of pixels to centimeters for any use case other than web designing, feel free to change the PPI value above as per your requirements.

How to Use Our Pixels to CM Converter & All Its Features?

First, select the mode of converter you want to use. Our pixel to cm converter has two modes - for web designing and for printing.

The difference between the two modes is that in 'Web Designing' mode, the tool offers a single input box for entering the pixel value to be converted. In 'Printing' mode, you have the convenience of two input boxes to enter the width and height in pixels, and it also provides centimeter conversions in a similar width and height format. This not only saves you time but also simplifies conversions for printing and related tasks.

No matter which mode you select, you can customize the PPI value to meet your specific requirements, ensuring that the tool works for your needs in either mode.

Once you are done selecting the mode, just enter the px value in pixels box or enter the width and height in pixels boxes (if you are in the printing mode).

The tool will automatically do the conversion as you type the value and show you the output in centimeters box.

Our tool also works both ways, meaning you can perform reverse conversions from cm to px. Simply enter or change the value in the centimeters box to view its pixel conversion in the pixels box.

BONUS FEATURE: In Printing mode, enter the width and height of the paper (in centimeters) on which you intend to print your design. Then, by adjusting the PPI, the tool displays the corresponding pixel dimensions your design should have, ensuring literally the pixel perfect print.

Convenient, isn't it? If you find our tool and its features helpful, feel free to save it to your bookmarks (Ctrl/Cmd + D)

How to convert pixel to cm?

Pixel To Centimeter Conversion Formula:

Centimeters = Pixel / PPI * 2.54

To convert pixel to cm, simply divide the pixel value you want to convert by the PPI (resolution) and then multiply it by 2.54. For example, if an image is 1920 pixels wide and has a resolution of 300 PPI, the calculation in centimeters would be: 1920 px ÷ 300 PPI x 2.54 = 16.26 cm

Now doing this calculation is pretty easy, but determining PPI for your conversion is the most important thing as it's not a fix value, and depends on what task you are doing pixel to centimeter conversion for.

So, how can you determine the correct PPI for your px to cm conversion?

Well, before I explain that it's important that you know what exactly is PPI and what is the difference between PPI and DPI.

What is PPI?

PPI stands for Pixels Per Inch. It is the number of pixels in an inch.

To understand it clearly, imagine a 1" x 1" square. The number of pixels in that square is the PPI.

Higher the number of pixels in that 1-inch square, higher the resolution (PPI) and more detailed that image or design would look on a screen.

What is DPI?

DPI stands for Dots Per Inch. It is the number of ink dots the printer prints in an inch. Again, higher the dots per inch, better the print quality.

DPI is a similar meaning and sounding term as PPI, which is why DPI is often confused with PPI.

Difference between PPI & DPI

The main difference between PPI and DPI is that PPI is used to describe the resolution of digital images, while DPI is used to describe the resolution of printed images.

Although PPI and DPI technically measure different things (pixels vs. printed dots), they can be considered equal for the purposes of converting pixel dimensions to real-world units like centimeter. In other words, 1 PPI = 1 DPI.

Now that you know about the PPI/DPI, let's talk about how you can determine the PPI for the conversion of pixel to cm.

How to determine PPI for your px to cm conversion?

Unless you are doing conversions for web design (i.e., writing CSS), there is no fixed PPI value for printing, graphics designing or other job.

However, there are standard PPI values for different use cases that are widely accepted and used by professionals. I have mentioned some common ones below—try them with your designs and prints, and tweak as needed until you achieve the desired image and print quality.

Common PPI Values by Use Case:

  • Web designing: 96 PPI (fixed)
  • Printing: 300 PPI
    • Large Banner or Billboard Printing: 50 PPI or lower (since it will be viewed from a distance lower PPI is fine)
    • Photographs & magazines: 300+ PPI (for clarity as it will be viewed up close)
    • Newspapers: 150 - 200 PPI
  • Graphics & images for web: 72 PPI (commonly used for web graphics)

So as mentioned earlier there's no one fix PPI value that you can use when converting pixel to centimeter. It depends on your specific task and requirement.

The above mentioned common PPI values for different use cases will give you a good baseline if you are confused. And you can tweak it from there to find the right PPI for your conversion.

So we hope that our pixels to cm converter tool makes it easy for you to do conversions and all the related explanations on this page helped you to learn to do the conversion correctly.
