Measuring screen elements in pixels
Authored by: mityaha on Mar 20, '12 03:30:17PM

Along with a few tools that you have to buy, you can still measure pixels on the Mac with its stock application. There is a Grab utility, you can capture screen selection, it will create window with an image of selected area (not saved to the disc yet), then you can go to Edit -> Inspector and it will show dimensions of selected area (it will also show dimensions as a tooltip during selection process). Good thing is that captured image isn't saved to the disc, you can just dismiss it. Not great, but does the job. It also supports delayed capture which is good for capturing popup menus and such.
