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.
