Sometimes you may want to know the properties of an image on a web site, probably since you want to download it as wallpaper, download it as clip art for your own site, save and print it, forward to friends… You would want to know the dimensions of the EXIF data, image, file size, URL and some other details. The Chrome extension introduced today, Image Properties Context Menu, helps you to achieve this without having to download the file to your hard disk first.
Check Image Properties on Web Pages Instantly
Image Properties Context Menu Chrome extension brings up a new window that reveals the following information:
- EXIF Data
- Location (URL of the page)
- Original dimensions if the image is shown resized
- Alt text
- File Size
- MIME Type
One thing I particularly like about this extension is EXIF data display. I like shooting photos and studying other people’s photos. If I found a great shot, I would like to know the aperture, exposure time and ISO settings. I may even want to know the camera the photographer used to take that picture. Instead of downloading the image file, I can directly check these information right in Chrome.
If you are a web designer, this is also a helpful tool for finding and downloading clip arts. You can know if the image is large enough to fill a particular space on the web page. You copy and paste the URL of the page and the image URL to your clip book for re-use later.
