In PowerPoint, Photoshop, Word and many other applications you can turn on a ruler to confirm size, alignment, etc. Enter the very cool JRuler application!

Here we can see the PPTBlog banner is 740px wide.

– JRuler is a free download (download here).

– It does not need to be installed (just launch the .exe any time)

– It can be stretched to any length (maximum is your screen resolution)

– It floats on top of all applications and windows

– Hint: right-click on it for a number of additional tools and options. Open the JRuler.htm file included in the download for full details
