I've searched everywhere for this, but no luck! I think I must be hallucinating.

I thought previous versions of Wordpress displayed the size of the images in the visual editor as you dragged them to be smaller or larger. As in, you would pull the corner of the image inward or outward, and the "live" size of the image would show above the image as you dragged it. In other words you could see what size the image is as you make it smaller or larger, and that size is what gets printed in the HTML.

Does anyone know if this "live image size display" exists in Wordpress' coding, or if there's a way to get something like that working? Am I hallucinating? Thank you!

This is a screencast from my WordPress 4.1 install:

live image info

where the image width x height info is visible while we resize the images.

This comes out of the box and no magic needed ;-)
