When I look at a photo of a 777 aircraft, how do I visually tell the type of engines it has (GE or PW or RR)? Also, how do I visually figure out what type of GE or PW or RR engines it has? Any visual aids such as technical drawings attached would be helpful to me. Thanks for any guidance on this.

I have observed that the GE90 is sort of short and compact-looking when viewed from the side compared to the others. The Trents seem relatively long compared to the PW and GE. The first 777 I saw was a PW-powered UA aircraft so that seems to be 'normal' for me.
