PhotosInfo displays useful file information about images in the Photos app on demand

Using the Photos app on an iPhone with older firmware can sometimes feel archaic because you won’t have access to file information such as the image resolution or the file size.

PhotosInfo displays useful file information about images in the Photos app.

Fortunately, a new and free jailbreak tweak called PhotosInfo by iOS developer ljinc can incorporate these features and more into the Photos app on pwned handsets running iOS 11 and later.

After you install PhotosInfo, you can tap on the title bar while viewing any image in the Photos app to invoke a pop-up with standard details about that image. Currently shown in the pop-up are the following details:

  • File location as viewed in a file manager app such as Filza
  • Image file name
  • Resolution of the image
  • File size of the image

This works with screenshots, photographs, and even the random images you save from the internet, group chats, or other third-party apps. The only thing you need to keep in mind, however, is that the tweak only works if you’ve saved the image to the Photos app.

With no options to configure, PhotosInfo is a no-nonsense jailbreak tweak that adds useful information to your Photos app, and for that, we can recommend it if you always find yourself requiring this information and then not being able to because the Photos app doesn’t support it natively (at least not on older versions of iOS).

Those interested in giving PhotosInfo a try can download it for free from the BigBoss repository via their favorite package manager app on their jailbroken iOS 11, 12, 13, or 14 device.
