Is there any way to set a custom quick look image in OS X? I'd like a command line tool or applescript to change or embed a custom preview for a file using a jpeg.

Have you taken a look on quicklookplugins.com ? There might already be quicklook plugin for your filetype... –  Asmus Feb 20 '11 at 17:44
    
I'm dealing with a digital camera RAW file. The preview is created by the camera and doesn't reflect any changes I've made in my RAW converter. –  Corey Riggle Feb 20 '11 at 18:41

No. The way Quick Look works is that a plugin, which recognizes your file, is required. Only such plugins can supply images to QL.
