DESCRIPTION:
In this #PSin30 tutorial, we’ll cover the Ruler tool in Photoshop CC. This tool I’ve termed “worthless” just because most of us will never really use it to its fullest capacity, but there are some cool and interesting things that it does! Learn how to straighten images, measure things in a photograph and draw with a protractor with the Ruler tool in Photoshop!

You're using the wrong number. L1 is the length of the line. I honestly don't know what w is, but I do know that when I created a perfect circle with a perfectly centered dot, and I measured outwards from the center to the edge, L1 was consistent no matter what part of the edge I was on. however, W changed as I made my way around the circle. So W can't be the line length.

I went back to photoshop to figure out what W is and it's the Width from left to right. That is to say, how many pixels to the left or right of the starting position, positive being to the right, negative being to the left. The H is the height, again how many pixels (or whatever unit of measurement) above or below the starting point, positive up, and negative down.

That means that W ONLY equals the length of the line if you are going directly left or directly right, otherwise, it is only how far to the right or left your cursor is from the starting point.

L1 is the ACTUAL length of the line that takes into consideration the angle and all that fancy jazzamatazz to give you the ACTUAL length of the line.

Hi, How do I put a vertical or horixzontal guide on the centre line of an image? Or matching guides equally spaced either side of the centre line?
