Photoshop: a way to show Smart Object file size

It would be great to somehow get a report or breakdown of the assets within a Photoshop file. This specifically applies to a file that has smart objects that contain large artwork. Many times I've found myself searching through large .PSD files to determine where the smart object is that is causing a very large file size.

Typically when I'm developing a design, I will retain larger artwork (e.g. photographs, illustrations, etc) within smart objects--this makes everything non-destructive and easily editable. However, when I deliver the file for production (e.g. to a developer), I like to rasterize my smart objects to optimize the file size. Currently, I'm not aware of an easy way to do this. It would be great if we could see a report of all the smart objects layers and their respective file size.

This could even just be an option on the layers panel that displays the size of the file size of the smart object next to the layer name.

»I like to rasterize my smart objects to optimize the file size.«
That can fairly easily be done with a Script.
You could ask about it over at
