I need to know the exact alpha value of a pixel in Photoshop. I tried using the answer in this question (Determine pixel alpha value in photoshop), but that gives me an opacity percentage such as 27%, which can be anything between 68 and 70, which all round to 27% after dividing by 255.

Is there any way to get the exact alpha value in Photoshop?

  • @spike_66 I know, and I even linked that question in my question. I'm looking for the exact alpha channel value from 0 to 255 rather than a percentage that can correspond to several alpha values. – user169819 Jan 17 '18 at 7:05

  • @spike_66: That's the same link. It doesn't give me the exact value, but rather the value rounded to the nearest percent. – user169819 Jan 19 '18 at 3:35

Make sure the info box is set to RGB. You will see three numbers (which should all be equal for your alpha-channel and will correspond to the value you are looking for.
