“This is a QuickLook plugin for MacOS-X 10.5/10.6 that allows QuickLook preview of Animated GIFs. The current GIF support in the Finder doesn’t show animations. This plugin extends the Finder to allow QuickLook to display the GIF in its animated form.”

    Installed it in OS X 10.6 and restarted Finder then looked at an animated gif. Sorry to say but it did nothing.

    Does this really work with 10.6 Snow Leopard?

  2. brh Says:

    Anders – it is definitely working for me under 10.6!

  3. Anders Says:

    Aah damn, I even rebooted now, still nothing.

    Did you put in in your user library?

  4. Xander Says:

    You have no idea how long I’ve been after this. WIN

  5. Tschakra-de Says:

    It works fine. But I have to put the Plugin manually in Library/Quicklook instead of User/Library/Quicklook. In the Userlibrary it does not work.

  6. Gustavo Ovalle Says:

    have you ever tried this command in terminal?

    qlmanage -r

    Try it and quicklook should be updated

    Gustavo Ovalle, thank you, now it works on Snow Leopard.

    I’ve been on Mac for 3 years now, it’s lack of .gif preview was the only thing that ever bothered me after the first week. Thankyou So Much for this!! =D

    Definitely isn’t working for me in 10.6.7

  11. J Says:

    This is not working for 10.6.7. I tried all of that and I still got that small blue box with a question mark.

    It works well running under 10.6.8, thanks a lot

  13. Doc Says:

    I ran the install file. Logged out and back in as it stated, and it works like a charm. It adds a scroll bar sometimes instead of resizing GIFs to fit within the QuickLook window, but other than that it works great. I’m running OSX 10.6.8.

    The good:
    -The gif’s run in the real.

    The bad:
    -transparent gif areas will appear black.
    -in most gifs you will see white and/or black borders around the image.
    -there is no (easy) way to unistall the plugin in some OS (ex Mountain Lion).
