Adobe Bridge - show PSD dimensions

Adobe Bride (CS5.5) - I can see dimensions/sizes of JPEG files and PDF files, but not PSD or PSB files.  Especially with the PSB files, it's a huge waste of time to open them just to find the pixel dimensions and resolution & color space.  Some files are 300MB-3GB.

Can I show this from Bridge?

Only tested in CS5 on Windows, but would expect it to be present in CS5.5 too -- when clicking a .psd-File in Bridge, the "File Properties" pane shows me all the meta information present for the file ... including things like color space, resolution, and pixel size of the image. Even twice, if you count the small box above it ... Screenshot ...

That area is blank, thus my frustration.  Trying to figure out what is broken, or if I have to force Bridge to scan a file.

maybe check for an update, or open a ticket at Adobe ... as you have the pane, it ought to be scanned and displayed ...

update:
Once I close the PSD file & Photoshop, the info updates and appears normally.
PSD ok


Still no joy for PSB files.

OK..somewhat "normally".  The create date is completely incorrect.  This computer did not exist in 2010, and the file was created a few minutes before the "modified" stamp.

Very frustrating when the essentials don't work.

Not a fix or consolation, but maybe it has a problem w/ files larger than 2GB ... have you tried to create a .psb file that is smaller? I just tried with a mini file, and again shown correctly in CS5 bridge ...

Test file of a 500MB PSB is working.  It even shows the underlying EXIF camera data (lens zoom setting, etc.) from the original photograph.

How strange.  PSB is made for large files.  I can't see anyone using it for small files, as it is slow to save.

I think you've pointed me in the right direction.

Temporary solution:  write down file dimensions on scrap paper.  It feels like the 90s again.  Write down X,Y coordinates, figure offsets, bleeds, etc.  Then do everything in low-res or outline mode.
