Using PowerShell to get image size

jsmorley » January 27th, 2018, 5:18 pm

In another thread, someone had asked about getting the actual width and height on an image file. While the suggested solution was to use the ImageSize plugin, and that works fine, I wanted to suggest an alternative, in case you don't want to have to use a plugin, and include it in your .rmskin for distribution.

What this does is two things:

1) Use a simple PowerShell .ps1 script to get the image width and height and return them as a string "width|height".

2) Use a simple Lua script to break this string into separate "width" and "height" values, which can be returned to any measure or meter using Inline Lua Variables.
