Yea im working on a school project and i need to design an A4 paper in Photoshop, so my question is: How many pixels is it?

Im gonna print it later on to, so it has to be exactly so it fits on the paper.

Ive been looking on google but i cant find anything that i understand, i just need the pixels. Like: 500 x 500

thnx - Nike

Don't quite understand your question but think these links are what you are getting at.

Are you printing with a margin-less printer?
and i take it you know you can change the rulers on photoshop to different units? e.g: inches, cm, pixels, mm, etc etc

Go to:

Depends on the DPI. Here is a table that will tell you. It is in German, but I am sure you can read the table.

DPI = dots per inch. This would have been easy to Google http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dots_per_inch
