Resizing in Photo current size in MB not showing

Recommended Posts

When resizing a photo in Affinity Photo it does not show the current MB size of the photo I am working on. It does not show the changed MB size of the photo. I have a MB requirement to meet when sizing photos and I do not want to have to close out and find the size of the photo in the directory. Where is the MB size of the photo while working in Photo? In Photoshop it shows in the resize dialog bow while performing the sizing function. I have searched to no avail. Thanks!

You can get a file size by going to File > Export, after selecting your export options an estimated file size is shown.

Which, since the file size will vary significantly depending on the export options chosen, is pretty much the only way it could work, give or take the estimated part.

As R C-R also wrote, resizing the photo is not decisive for the resulting file size. The format of the file (lossy / lossless), and possibly its compression level, is much more important, and this is known only when exporting photo.

Thank you. But I do need to know before exporting. Wow. 

In Photoshop when resizing it show current MB size and changed MB size while resizing. I have to size photos but need to keep MB the same size while sizing. I know they change when exporting. But I feel like I am blind resizing in this program.

Regardless, you have to choose the export options you want to use, even if you don't decide to export the file immediately.

Is not it more about Export Preview?

If you mean in the info panel or status bar display, those two numbers do not show you the size of the exported file. The first number is the "printing size" of the image, which is the approximate size of the file if you flattened it & saved it in the Adobe Photoshop format. The second number is the approximate size including layers, channels, & metadata, an indicator of the amount of data Photoshop must handle while you are working on the file in that app.

If you mean what you see at the top of the Image > Image Size dialog, that is the pixel dimensions (width times height) of the document, not the file size.
