Was trying to print a few images at a store kiosk and tried to find image sizes in the Lr app and could not. Tapped info but no joy.. Had to depend on the kiosk computer to eventually tell  me if an image resolution was too low. Not ideal.

How do we quickly see an image size and pixels to determine it print worthiness?

Thank-you

Check the Info tab again. The pixel dimensions (both cropped and original) should be listed immediately below the filename, which itself is just below the File extension. See this screenshot from my Android phone, you'll notice that the filaname and pixel dimensions are quite faint, maybe that's why you aren't seeing it.

Thanks for your reply ~

Mine does not look like your screenshot on my phone. However - I did poke my info and it gave me different info each time I poked it, toggling 4 different info messages. But none offer kb or my size...

 

I still request that the size (kb or mb) be added because pixel dimensions do not give the full story on quality for print. Surprised I would be the first requesting this and surprised its not already available. How do users know the quality of a potential print if the my size is not offered? Look in another app?

I'm not following you when you say that you got a different info each time you "poked it, toggling 4 different info messages". The Info tab is a static display, so I think we're not talking about the same thing. There are 4 different display tabs that you can select (Edit, Info, Rate & Review, Activity), but only the Info tab displays the information that you are looking for. Perhaps you should post a couple of screenshots showing the different displays so that we can figure out what's happening.

 

The size of the file (in KB or MB) is not what you should be using to judge the suitability of an image for print. The only practical value is the actual cropped pixel dimensions, and you use those to determine if you have enough pixels to print this image to the size that you want and at the PPI value that you want. If you are exporting a raw file to Jpeg for subsequent printing, you would also need to pay attention to the Quality value as well. You can't do that determination from the physical size of the image file.

Each time I tap the info it toggles amongst 4 different info displays - each with different image info. Here are 3 of 4 screen shots. Still seems relevant to me knowing the kb/mb of an image. One could upload an original size image, but quality could be set to 50%, for example. Would that not affect print quality?

The above is from my Samsung phone. 

My tablet displays image info similar to your screenshot.

OK, that's the info display that you can get in Edit mode, I was showing the dedicated Into tab which you can select if you tap on the "Edit" word at the top of that screen. No matter, you can still see the cropped and original pixel dimensions in your third screenshot.

I don't see how it's relevant.....in your example you cannot determine what quality setting was used (when you exported the image) by looking at the image file-size. You'd just be guessing. If I couldn't remember what quality setting I used when I exported, I'd go back to the original and export it again.

 

However, if you feel strongly about it, you can post a feature request at the official Adobe feedback site: https://feedback.photoshop.com/topics/lightroom-mobile/5f5f2093785c1f1e6cc40875
