Script snippet to find the size of an image.

I need to write a script that will copy image files to a DVD from an online website I own. The script I can write, whats giving me problems is a bash code snippet that tells me the size of a gif, png, jpg, etc. I can find: upsize, downsize, resize, but no sizof.

As I down load, I want to copy them into directories of between 4 and 4.5 gigs. This will make it easier to burn if they are already broken down into size groups. I didn't find anything in ImageMagick and haven't looked into FFmpeg yet.

Some thought? Directions?
Never mind
If you look long enough you will find the answer even in a 5 year old thread.
