After you find a picture you like
click on it
The picture will open on the right
hover over the picture
look at the bottom left and you can see the actual pixel count of the image.
Example :2048x2048 This picture is 2048 pixels wide and 2048 pixels tall. It is square If you multiply those numbers and divide by 1000000 you can get the "size" in megapixes of the image. In this example 2048x2048/1000=4.194304MP. For reference an iphone x takes 12MP pictures. If you are printing: A good rule of thumb is 300pixels per inch of your print. So, if you want to print 8.5x11, then you would want 2550x3300 image size for a "good" print.
