How do I view image dimensions in List View in Finder? I found this but I don't find this option on my machine. I'm running Snow Leopard; is this a Lion only feature?

I'm not sure about 10.6, but on 10.7 the dimensions are shown in information panels:


Lion only

Any subdirectory of ~/Pictures can do this:

Note: (Thanks to @koiyu)

While the first nine options are available for any list view, the options below the first line differ according to the relative location in your folder.

Options in:~/Pictures/.. Options in:~/Music/..

    If I remember correctly the extra columns available for list view are relative to the folder path. Is your Mac Wallpaper under ~/Pictures by any chance? If not, I stand corrected. Dec 28, 2011 at 10:00
  • Interesting! Your assumption is correct. I did not notice this before because I sort my media according to the default folders in the home directory.

  • I think this is available in Snow Leopard aswell, but I cannot confirm this. Try it and report back!
