Pixel size, a few ways:

<p>

When scanning- pixel size = scanning dots per inch x image size

<p>

when editing- go to resample the image, and select pixels from the size list box. Don't resample it, just cancel out.

<p>

or file, document info.

<p>

on screen:- measure the image, multiply by pixels on screen/monitor size.

<p>

There you go.

<P> <IMG SRC="http://members.aol.com/_ht_a/w2705/ws19.jpg" WIDTH="300" HEIGHT="357" HSPACE="10" ALIGN="RIGHT"> The original image is 300&times;357 pixels. By specifying the <CODE>WIDTH</CODE> and <CODE>HEIGHT</CODE> attributes you force the browsers to re-scale your image. In this case you change the aspect ratio. See the image here for the un-changed size.</P>

<P>As for finding the size you can load the image into Netscape (or IE) and right-click to select 'View Info'. Select the image from the list of page elements (if you have loaded the <CODE>.jpg</CODE> file directly, then that is the only element) and Netscape will show you the size.</P>
