I would love if Lightroom showed file size in MB in library view as a metadata option. I have found that in a burst photos, the sharper one will always have a larger file size, and so I use file size to help find the sharper photo in a burst. I would like to be able to see file size to help determine sharpness at a glance.

That would be really great. Still this is a missing feature for me.

I’d like Lightroom to provide a way to rapidly and easily find large pictures in a collection. It’s easy to create giant TIFFs when editing in Photoshop, making the originals for the collection ponderous to store and upload.

Lightroom can display file size in loupe view, metadata EXIF & IPTC (an odd choice, considering file size is neither of those kinds of data), but that’s one file at a time. What I'd _really_ like is a way to add file size to the Library View Options > Expanded Cell Extras... Then it would become much easier to go through a collection and find the big files. Or even better, View > Sort > filesize!

Thx,

Rob
