Add column Total Pixels

Post by mrwul » Sat May 05, 2018 5:38 am

See: viewtopic.php?f=82&t=37379
Title: How to filter images with specific dimensions?

Suggestion to add a column 'Total Pixels' so one can sort on that.
(being different from sorting on W-pixels or H-pixels)

You can do that already as I explained here:

just sort the images by "image size" (not filesize)
Extra hint: No need to add a column to the details grid only to click on it - Just use the "sort by" icon, sort by "image size" and you get exactly what you asked for...

Very sorry for the delay, some other things came in between.

You are very right indeed!
Thanks for the tip. Really appreciated.

The thing in my case is that I would like to sort on number of pixels, so I can delete files below (e.g.) 300,000 or 250,000 total pixels.
You are right, when sorting on size, it is the same as sorting on total pixels, I checked it.
But then, regretfully, I can't see the number of pixels, so it is difficult to see where (e.g.) 300,000 is starting.

Below screenshot shows what I mean

Anyway, again, you are right.
I've solved the problem in the meantime.

Thanks again.

You could, in principle, create an image with 300,000 pixels that you could copy into a folder to indicate the start of larger images...

Edit:

I have created one for you!

If you rename the file to something like -------------- it should show as a natural divider in the folder!
