    Hi!
    I have a problem with image dimensions in Finder. Finder doesn't show image dimension info in preview column and Get Info window. But when I open in Preview app I can see dimensions in Get Info window. How to solve this problem.

    If Preview gives you the info that you need - why not just use the Preview app?

    If I want to sort my images by resolution

    Thanks for your reply. If I want to sort images by dimension, I can't do that. Because Finder doesn't know image dimensions. You can see images below.

    My finder shows dimensions just fine and allows sorting also.

    Try re-indexing your drive: If that fails to index, enter the following command in Terminal:
    sudo mdutil -E /​

    That only appears to be an option in the Pictures folder. Dimensions isn't available in other folders, unless something has changed between Mavericks and Yosemite.

    Ok. Rebuilding Spotlight index solves the problem. Thank you for your advice.

    @jbarley - what software did you use so that finder windows display the dimensions as a part of the window header?
    It's not a standard Finder option, or a setting that I can discover in the system.
    I see the dimensions in a Get Info window, but how did you get the dimensions to appear as a file category in the Finder window?

    As I mentioned before, that option is only available when viewing the Pictures folder. It's not an option on other folders.

    I saw your post earlier - but still would like to know how you have that added as a category.
    And, I'm looking at Pictures folders in a Lion, and a Mavericks, and a Yosemite system, and none have a ~/Pictures folder with Dimensions displayed. Just curious where you find the option to turn that on, for the Pictures folder, or any other folder, fwiw...?

    - NEVERMIND - found it, your dropdown shows it clearly, and I was trying way too hard to make it NOT work. Sorry for wasting your time :D
    BTW - the Movies folder has other choices, such as duration... Also, Music has others, too!
