Just upgraded from Tiger 10.4.11 to Leopard 10.5.8.... QL works really nice, but now my JPG files wont show a preview, even when performing a regular Get-Info... I'm also using SneekPreview Pro to enhance QL, but the other one, SneakPeekPhoto I had to uninstall, 'cause it was causing my Finder to quit unexpectedly... Any solution here?

    Must be something weird with those jpg's.  I just created a little jpg and set the finder view options of the enclosing folder to "Show Icon Preview" and that worked.  I did a Get Info on the file and and looked in the Preview section (after clicking the disclosure triangle) and that also worked.  I set the view options of the enclosing folder to column view and click the jpg and it shows the picture in the next column.  Lastly I right clicked on the jpg and in the finder contextual selected Quick Look and that worked too.
