Lightroom: Filter or sort by file size

It would be extremely useful to be able to sort or filter by file size (and megapixel too). for example, if you have a run an action there may be files that are small (eg cropped or reduced in size) or large (because they have multiple layers still embedded - I run an action and then open the files to do do final layer opacity changes etc). I keep having to go to Finder to fine files that need to be opened, then you have to fiddle to find the right ones. Its just not clever to not have this funciton - Bridge has it

Which application are you using? You didn't specify which application you are requesting this feature be added to.

There is no way for any plugin to influence sort order, yet, that I know of. But, there are a few plugins that can filter photos by megapixel count and/or file size (or other criteria available to plugins, but not explicitly supported by Lightroom natively).

For instance:
- DevMeta
- AnyFilter

It's still in beta, so its worth keeping that in mind. However the most recent version (1.3 @2012-01-01) seems to be stable.

The initial release of Any Filter is now available:

A number of bugs have been fixed thanks to several beta users, most especially Rob.

List View lets you sort by file size (or any other field). Its next revision lets you copy the sorted list into a new collection. See http://photographers-toolbox.com/prod...

Hey John, not only is this looking like a really great solution but you have so many other great plug-ins there. Thanks a lot
