Chrome’s context menu has an option for opening an image in a new tab, but when it comes to image properties there’s no way of finding an image’s dimensions or file size without downloading the image and opening it in your local viewer. While Google Image Search provides this information, many search engines and pages do not, and if you’re often on the hunt for images where size matters, you’ll need something to smooth out the workflow.
Step in Image Size Info, a rather simple but useful (to those who need it) extension for Chrome. Once installed, it adds an image information entry to the right-click context menu. The extension provides fast access to the image’s dimensions in pixels, the currently displayed area of the image (handy for images that have been scaled down on the page) and of course the file size.
The extension also provides quick access to the image URL, though Chrome already has this covered with the “Copy Image URL” entry from the context menu. The extension doesn’t do much more than this, but if you’ve been looking for a tool that makes trawling for images easier then this one might just do the job.
