How to Quickly View The Image Properties In Chrome

How many times have you wanted to know more about a Web image, but didn’t know where to find the information? Have you tried using Google Chrome’s “inspect element” feature, but found yourself confused?

Image properties can provide important information pertaining to any Web image that you may need for research, a blog post, a project, etc. Because of this, it’s nice to have a convenient way to access that information.

Whether you want to avoid Google Chrome’s element inspector or just want an easier way to view the properties of a Web image, here’s what you can do.

1. Install the Image Properties Context Menu extension for Google Chrome.

2. When you find an image that you want to know more about, right-click on it and select “Image Properties.”

Right-click on any image to view its properties in Chrome.

3. A small window will pop up with your image and the following information: location, source, dimensions, ALT text, data URI, file size, MIME type. If one of these parameters isn’t available, then the field will remain blank.

View image properties and zoom in or out in Chrome.

4. Clicking anywhere on each field will automatically highlight/select the entire field, which makes it easy to copy the data.

Zoom in and out of an image with Image Properties Context Menu.

5. You can also zoom in/out of the image by using the magnifying slider to the right of the image – when you hover your mouse over the magnifying glass, it will turn into a slider.

Now isn’t that so much quicker than using the element inspector or doing a search to find out more about an image?
