Help with Lightroom 4 questions please!

Hi,
Two questions please.

1. How do you check the overall size of an image in Lightroom 4 before exporting. In Photoshop it is image/size so what is it in Lightroom please?

2. I have Canon raw files and tiffs and want to upload to 500PX and other web site galleries in one action. Is it possible? How do you set up an action to convert an image, say a tiff, to a certain size and then save as a jpeg and upload to 500pX using the plugin all in one action? At the moment I am saving the tiff as a jpeg to a correct size but then exporting to another folder ready to either manually upload or re-import to Lightroom as a jpeg then upload. Surely there is a quicker way than this? Sad

1. it is in the metadata panel in the develop module:

2: I don't know about the 500px plugin but normally on the Export screen there are settings for your account details etc. you just put them in and it uploads, maybe best to talk to 500px.

However, the size of the exported file will depend upon the settings in the export menu

Herewith my settings for an epz upload.

As jjgee says, you set them in the export menu.

No need to check because you have set the dimensions yourself to the size you want.
