Is there a way to show image size in the studio?

yes! You can either choose one of the media plugins , which will do that, or build a custom input component and display it there πŸ™‚ You just have to look into the image type and understand the structure it is build/stored in.

Yeah I just want to warn the editors if they add a huge image (file size) to an article

You can also create a custom input component. Given:
export default {
  name: 'figure',
  title: 'Image',
  type: 'image',
  fields: [
      name: 'size',
      title: 'Size',
      type: 'string',
      inputComponent: ImageSize,
      options: {
        isHighlighted: true,
//other fields

import React, { useState, useEffect } from 'react';
import { studioClient } from '../../lib/utils/studioClient';

const ImageSize = ({ parentValue }) => {
  const [imageSize, setImageSize] = useState();

  useEffect(() => {
    const getImage = async () =>
      await studioClient
        .fetch(`*[_id == $id][0].metadata.dimensions{ height, width }`, {
          id: parentValue.asset._ref,
  }, [parentValue]);

  return (
      Size: {imageSize?.width}px x {imageSize?.height}px

export default ImageSize;
That's just a quick and dirty example, though!

Oh, and I just realized: if you're just trying to warn a user that they've entered a large image you can use a validation rule that returns a warning if the image is above a certain size.
