Get Info doesn't give image dimensions (4 posts)

    The Get Info window gives me the file size (e.g., 68k) but does not give me dimensions. This is very frustrating. Is there a way to add this information to the Get Info window, or to find it some other way than going back to my hard drive and looking it up?

    Hi Angelique,

    No, there currently is not a way to show that information in the Fetch Get Info window.

    The reason the Get Info window doesn't show the dimensions is that it would have download the entire image file in order to display that information. For files is on a server, the only information Fetch can get quickly is the name of the file, the date it was modified, its size, and its permission settings - because that is all the information about a file that the server tells Fetch. To learn anything else about the image, Fetch would have to download it back down to your Mac, which might not be what you want to happen when you get info (because if it was a large image, that would take a while and use up bandwidth).

    So, unfortunately, to get the image dimensions of a file on the server are to find the original file on your hard drive, or download the file with Fetch and then look at the downloaded file (if you don't feel like searching your hard drive).

    Please let us know if you have any further questions.

    Thanks,

    There is another way! Just open the file in with webview. The image will appear in Safari, and then you click on "Window." The name and dimensions of the file are right there!

    Hi Angelique,

    That hadn't occurred to me - good thinking, and thanks for the suggestion.

    You've still downloaded the image file - it's just the web browser that did the downloading, instead of Fetch. But it is probably more convenient than finding the file on your hard drive.

    Best,
