Where is the rendered image info in Blender 2.8?

An example screenshot I found from Blender Artists highlights some info near the blue cube in the rendered image. In previous versions of Blender there was a status bar with handy image info showing XYZ and RGB data.

Blender 2.79 example render


In the Image editor, If you Right click on the image, you can sample the pixels of the image. A small window appears at the bottom of the screen where you can read the pixel information.

(for previous versions of blender: left click on the UV/Image editor window)

enter image description here

From Left to right you see:

$X$ (horizontal) and $Y$ (vertical) pixel position ($0$,$0$ is at the bottom left of the screen)

Z depth, in blender units.

Red, Green, Blue, Alpha information before the color management transforms (Scene Referred, Linear values).

Red, Green, Blue after the Color Management transforms (Display Referred, values)





  • $\begingroup$ Are you sure this works for Blender 2.8? When I right click on an image I just get an empty context menu. Maybe I should try getting a newer beta version? $\endgroup$ Mar 22 '19 at 11:04
  • $\begingroup$ The image was made on 2.8. As you know 2.8 is in Beta, thus changing constantly. Use the latest version. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I updated to the latest Beta and the right-click 'Sample Color' now works in the UV Editor, but not in the Rendering tab with my old file opened. However, it works everywhere when I start a new file. Obviously some bug hiding out... I'm accepting this answer as it is correct. :-) $\endgroup$ Mar 22 '19 at 19:39

Be sure you are in "image editor" and not in "uv editor" window (editor type). I was strugling with it too.
