Yes - you can use Automator to make a service for Finder (or all applications) to perform rotation of images. Then you can assign a keyboard shortcut to that action. I'm not aware of quicklook plug-in that rotate, but that's something that might exist. Modifying finder's shortcut bar might be the least likely way to activate things, but hopefully an ...

I have had little joy so far, after trying several downloads. You can install Fluke to play Flac audio files in some apps, such as Quicktime Player 7. This doesn't resolve the issue though, because it appears Quicklook preview still does not work. I had hopes for Xiph.org's codecs, and Perian, though the latter probably just uses Xiph and is no longer ...

Yes, it is possible, but not directly from the internet. The file needs to be downloaded first. qlmanage -p '/path/to/file' will show the quick look preview for that file. It will also write some debug information to stderr, so I usually append >/dev/null 2>&1 to the end of the command. In your case, you will need to download the file first in ...

Also, according to this KB article on what cameras Apple supports - it is similarly vague that you need specific versions of Aperture or iPhoto to even see whether your machine needs a RAW ...
