Click here to try it now free.
Its easy, simple and fast. PixelStick is a measuring tool you can pinch and stretch to measure anything on your screen.

Its like an onscreen virtual ruler that you can use vertically, horizontally and at any angle to measure distances, angles and much more just by dragging.

Check out this screencast on GigaOm that shows PixelStick in use.

PixelStick is totally intuitive and works exactly like what you would hope for. PixelStick sits in the frontmost position on the screen. Drag the endpoints to change the measurement. Click the locks to constrain the movement. Drag to change the angle. See the changes and info in the small on screen info panel.

Coordinate System
PixelStick uses a Cartesian coordinate system like the OS X coordinate system. This means that the origin (pixel 0,0) is at the lower left corner of the screen. However, OS X deals mainly in points, whereas PixelStick is all about pixels. A point has no width and resides between pixels.

PixelStick reports both pixel distance and pixel difference.

The pixel distance includes the width of the PixelStick endpoints. This is so that the actual size of the item being measured is reported. The pixel difference merely subtracts the coordinates.

In the illustration below, the height of the picture is 13 pixels, so the distance is reported as 13.00. Note that if the diamond endpoint is at a position of y = 1, then the circle endpoint is at a position of y = 13. Thus pixel difference is 13 - 1 = 12.

PixelStick Tips:
When measuring, position the endpoints inside the area to be measured.The easiest way to get both dimensions of an area is to position the endpoint exactly on top of the corner.After measuring the height (see example), the circle endpoint can be dragged over to the other corner to get the width.
