How do I find out the exact size of a graphic or image after it has a clipping mask applied in Illustrator? When you just select the image or do Ctrl+A it shows the entire image size(including the masked unwanted portion) in the transform palette and I just need the final dimensions of the image. Can anyone suggest how I can find out what the masked image size is?
If you are using an older version of Illustrator, you'll need to not simply "Select All", or select all, then de-select the masked content and use the Direct Selection Tool (White arrow) - or Layers Panel - to select only the clipping mask shape rather than the entire clipped group.
The inclusion of non-visible clipped content was an annoyance many users complained about, which is why more recent versions of Illustrator no longer show content which is not visible.
