Resize Photoshop canvas to fit selected layer's (larger) dimensions


Question

I know how to crop, to fit a selected layer's dimensions that are smaller than my canvas, but is there an easy way to upsize my canvas to fit a selected object that is larger than it? Can I find out the selected layer's dimensions easily, so I could manually resize my canvas?

Example:

canvas

I have selected an image that I placed into my document, by CMD + Clicking on its thumbnail in the layers palette. I need to resize my document to fit the selected artwork.

Accepted Answer

The easiest way I can think of is holding cmd while left clicking the bigger layer, and afterwards press C to crop to the selected area. This should make the canvas the same size as the selected layer.
