Fix blank image preview with Quick Look in Mac OS X

If you have activated the text selection feature in Quick Look (pressing the space key) you may get a blank preview while viewing some images.

blank quick look

This can be fixed by running this command on the terminal:

defaults delete com.apple.finder QLEnableTextSelection; killall Finder

If you want to get the text selection feature back run this command:

defaults write com.apple.finder QLEnableTextSelection -bool TRUE; killall Finder
