QuickLook and Spotlight plugins to display the dimensions, size and DPI of an image in the title bar instead of the filename. Also preview some unsupported formats like WebP & bpg.
This project is composed of both a QuickLook plugin and a Spotlight plugin. Both are independant and can be built separately. They require at least macOS High Sierra (10.13).
This is the QuickLook plugin, it displays the dimensions, DPI and file size of an image in the title bar.
This plugin can also preview and generate Finder thumbnails for natively unsupported images formats bpg and WebP.
This is the Spotlight plugin, it displays informations of unsupported images (WebP, bpg) in the Finder's inspector window.

If you are a Pixelmator user, its own QuickLook plugin might get in the way when previewing WebP files. To fix this you need to edit the file
/Applications/Pixelmator.app/Contents/Library/QuickLook/PixelmatorLook.qlgenerator/Contents/Info.plist and remove the dict entry that handles webp.
After editing the
Info.plist, QuickLook for the Pixelmator file format (such as
.pxm) might not work due to Code Signing. You can unsign Pixelmator's QuickLook binary using the tool unsign. After downloading and building it, just run :
It will create another binary with the extension unsigned, rename the orignal binary for backup then remove the extension for the unsigned binary, ex :
mv /Applications/Pixelmator.app/Contents/Library/QuickLook/PixelmatorLook.qlgenerator/Contents/MacOS/PixelmatorLook /Applications/Pixelmator.app/Contents/Library/QuickLook/PixelmatorLook.qlgenerator/Contents/MacOS/PixelmatorLook.bak mv /Applications/Pixelmator.app/Contents/Library/QuickLook/PixelmatorLook.qlgenerator/Contents/MacOS/PixelmatorLook.unsigned /Applications/Pixelmator.app/Contents/Library/QuickLook/PixelmatorLook.qlgenerator/Contents/MacOS/PixelmatorLook
