'pixel dimensions' is more confusing than it needs to be, so I changed 
to 'size in pixels':

  app: "Pixel dimensions" -> "Size in pixels" in Image Properties dialog

  'Pixel dimensions' can be misinterpreted with the size of a pixel, so
  use 'size in pixels' instead. This is consistent with e.g. the Scale
  Image dialog which talks about 'image size'.
