    Do you mean the original image pixel dimension ex-camera or the potential pixel dimensions of the edited end result?

    I only have a newer version of C1 (16.3), but it's probably the same. 

    Expand the Metadata section in the library panel.  Then, expand the Basic section.  There you should see dimensions in pixels of the original file, before any crop or export recipe is applied.

    If you then click on the Proofing tool and select a full size JPEG as your proof target (but you can leave the proofing disabled) and then click on the crop tool and grab the top crop handle, it will show you the live dimensions as you adjust the crop.

    In reply to both.

     

    I meant the original pixel dimensions. I need to know what I have first before I start working on the image.

    Useful to know the post crop dimensions using the method above. But all I'd like is something very simply: the original pixel dimensions shown alongside the other basic metadata (aperture etc.). It's only one extra field to add and there is plenty of room for it. I know that I can get to it, but so can I get to aperture etc. but other fields have been displayed - why not original pixel data? I get this information displayed on top if I edit the photo in Affinity Photo.

    stuartb - We are not Capture One employees, just other users.  So we can help with how the program works, but cannot answer questions about why they don't add something you want.  You can file a feature request here https://captureone.ideas.aha.io/ to draw some attention to your particular request.

    Sorry - thought that I had clicked on the ideas section but obviously did not look carefully. I have done it now.

    Stuart,

    I've often found the output dimensions useful but not so much the original file. Then again maybe I would have a different opinion if I used a lot of cameras with significantly different sensor sizes or built-in crops realted to specific features.

    The real challenge I would see is finding space to make the information usefully visible when one is not in full display size in the viewer.

    That said you do have the option to include the "Dimensions" for a file to the name when importing or renaming. Might that help?

    I'd only need to see it in full display, as in other programs that I use. My file naming structure is fairly long already, so that would not work for me. Because ISO, aperture, shutter speed and focal length are already displayed I'd have thought that pixel size would be an obvious addition and not take up much space. If these items were thought to be useful enough to display then pixel dimensions should also be there.
