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.

About Mavericks (OS X 10.9)

qlImageSize doesn't fully work on 10.9. By fully, I mean it works for certain types of images like tga, bmp, psd, tif but not for the common ones jpg, png, gif.

It is a known bug in the OS and I can't do anything about it, Apple never fixed it and won't. The best way is to update to this ugly as fuck 10.10, how sad.

For more informations, see issue 4.
