Selecting an image in finder and pressing space to bring up Quick Look / View is something I use all the time.

However I'd prefer a med grey background colour as I work allot with transparent png's with white borders - so currently its hard to so see the edges.

Anyone know of a setting / app / method for setting this?

osx 10.9.2

  • Ah of course! And I just googled you can hold Option + Space to open Quick View in fullscreen.
