Image size info in Finder

Show item infoFor a person working with images all day seeing the pixel size of images in Finder can be very useful.

To get this feature in Finder press Apple(Cmd)-J and switch on the Show Item Info option in the window preferences. You will instantly see a second row of information below your image files set in a nice small blue typeface. It's actually white for the files on the Desktop.

This option will also show the number of items in a folder or the size of a volume and available free space, but these are less exciting than the image size for me.

Just tried this, it also indicates whether the image is RGB or CMYK (this is a MASSIVE bonus for me!) and shows the embedded colourspace. Thanks for the tip.

I'm not seeing the 'RGB/CMYK' info- where?

This is a great tip and very timely too; I'm working on a Mambo template at the moment and was looking for something like this.
