Add media library column with image width and height

Advanced Custom Fields Review - default

Adding this snippet to the functions.php of your wordpress theme will add a new column to the media library that will display the images width and height.

( example screenshot )

function wh_column( $cols ) {
	$cols["dimensions"] = "Dimensions (w, h)";
	return $cols;
function wh_value( $column_name, $id ) {
    $meta = wp_get_attachment_metadata($id);
           echo $meta['width'].' x '.$meta['height'];
add_filter( 'manage_media_columns', 'wh_column' );
add_action( 'manage_media_custom_column', 'wh_value', 10, 2 );

    Practical post ! I am thankful for the info ! Does anyone know where I could possibly obtain a blank OR Form 8.010.5 document to work with ?

  2. How can I go about adding dimensions to the “Media Library” tab in the Media Uploader?

  3. I suggest this code
    function wh_value( $column_name, $id ) {
        if ( $column_name == “dimensions” ):
        $meta = wp_get_attachment_metadata($id);
               echo $meta[‘width’].’ x ‘.$meta[‘height’];

    because if you have anothre column this code non rewrire the dimensions

    1. Brilliant, now I can combine it with the show ID snippet! Thank youu Andrea!

  4. Hi! Again, great snippet. Your website is a gold mine for a humble blogger like me 🙂
    I just added this code to my functions.php, the Dimensions (w, h) column appears, it works great. But if I look at the column next to it: ‘ID’ now I get the dimensions + ID number.


    Dimensions (w, h) shows 400 x 300
    ID column shows 400 x 300 (nospace) 235 (which is the ID number) + one mysterious number between 1 and 5.

    Is it normal or is it just me? 🙂

    Thanks a lot!

    1. should not display that, what version of wordpress are you running?

      1. Hi Kevin, I’m using WP 3.0.4 and I have yet to upgrade, I know, I’m late 🙂

        1. Ill test things out in that version make sure it has no issues.
