I use Ubuntu 11.10 with Gnome 3 (gnome shell) UI.

Is it possible to get a quick image info by clicking or hovering the image, without having to right click -> properties -> image ?

I often have to know image resolution and repeating these steps for 100 images is so frustrating.

For 11.04 and earlier, the package nautilus-columns package can be added to integrate the feature into nautilus so a resolution column can be added, like this:

Unfortunately no one has updated it for Gnome 3.x, so it won't work on 11.10 and later. On these versions of Ubuntu, I prefer to use the app gThumb rather than fight with the limited feature set of nautilus. GThumb is in the Ubuntu repositories.
