My apologies if this is obvious...

If I have an open project that comprises a number of images, is there a way to see the size in pixels of each of images by clicking on them?

Many thanks for any replies.

Hi Bluehorizon,

If you are in Organizer, goto Window and then check the properties option. A properties box will pop up. Now select(by clickiing) the image for which you want to see the pixel size. The size will appear in the "Size" field present in the properties dialog box. This field firstly show the file size and then the pixel size. Now you can see the size of any image by clicking on it in Properties Box.

If you are in Editor, launch Preference dialog by pressing Ctrl + K for Windows , or Command + K in case of Mac. In the Preference dialog box go to "Units and Rulers". In the first field i.e. Rulers select pixels and confirm by selecting OK.
Now above the project bin you will see the zoom percentage of the image. Besides that box you will see another box with an arrow. Click on the arrow and select "Document Dimensions". Now whenever you open any image you will see the pixel size in this dialog box.

Hope this helps.

Rahul.

Thanks so much for your reply.

I think you are referring to the overall document size.

If I have several images within the same document is there a way to click on one of those images and see it's size, rather than the size of the whole document?

Hi BlueHorizon,

You can use the rectangular marquee to draw out a rectangle over the image within your document and then find the pixel dimensions of that rectangle via the Info Panel. First make sure that in Preferences>Units & Rulers, you have the units set to "Pixels" in the Rulers section. Then, show your Info Panel by going to Window from the main menu and ticking the Info option. In the Info Panel (it will probably be beneath your layers panel), you may have to click on the small dropdown menu at the right of that panel, as shown in this screenshot:

Then in the panel options dialog, choose pixels for mouse coordinates and document dimensions for status information:

Now, when you drag your mouse using the rectangular marquee, you'll see the pixel dimensions of that area in the info panel.

Thanks for your reply.

I've just found that I can do this by clicking on the object which engages the free transform tool. Then, if I click any of the handles the dimension of the object is shown in pixels in the information panel.

It would be nice to have this just by clicking anywhere on the object.

Once again, thanks to all for the responses.

That will work nicely for elements that are on their own layers. If you've got merged layers or have flattened your document, you'd probably have to make a selection of the shape to get the dimensions.
