I'm working with heavy PSD files containing multiple layers and got tired of finding the easy way to determine what layers are affecting the filesize more than others. Any chance of adding property columns (that show layer size in bytes or kilobytes, at least) like on the image I attached? Or maybe there is existing extention that can make this possible?

With PSD file parser you could read layers. So you could also read layers length in bytes inside file which is data size of layer: https://www.adobe.com/devnet-apps/photoshop/fileformatashtml/ There already are file parsers so if anybody could modify one then it would work.
