Possible to list storage size of images stored within a stack?

Hi Andrew,

put the size of img 1
put the length of img 1

both work. Also keep in mind that the amount of (virtual) memory used by images is a multiple of the stored size. Therefore it might be a bad idea to store many images inside a stack and references image objects might be a better way.

Best regards,

There are quite a few images,  so I was just wondering if there was a way to find out which images were taking up the most space in the app so I could work on those first.
