How to calculate the area of a layer in centimeters using photoshop


I want to calculate the size of a layer area in centimeters using photoshop. Is there any tool to do so rather than the ruler? The layer I need to calculate the size of its area doesn’t have a proper shape.

Thanks in advance


Make a selection and there is a INFO tab where you can see the size. You have to set the unit to centimeters in Preferences -> Units (pixels is the default setting).
