    How many pixels in one mm?

    Hello,

    How many pixels are there in one millimeter (length and not area) of a standard PC screen (I don't know what is the standard size of PC screens):

    a- When using a 1024x768 screen resolution.
    b- When using a 800x600 screen resolution.

    It'll be different on each monitor - 14', 15', 17', 19' and bigger.
    So there's no one and universal value for this.

    Out of curiosity, why do you need to know this?

    Pixels are not a unit of physical measurement, so any comparison you try to make between pixels and millimeters/inches/miles will be flawed and inaccurate from the start.

    And as a sidenote, this is why 72 pixels/inch as a »standard screen resolution« really doesn't say anything.
