A way to maximize Quick Look size?

Does anyone know if there's a way via Terminal to change the default size for Quick Look?

The reason is - I often find myself hitting spacebar to view an image and then having to reposition and resize the image to make it fill my screen.
(When on my iMac it's not so much necessary, but my 11-inch Air it's a different story)

So I was wondering if maybe there's a way to modify OS X to always quicklook at max height?
(when the image dimensions reach that far)

Realizing this is the programming forum and you may be asking about programatic access I think you need to be more specific as to what you are trying to do before we can answer the question adequately.

If you're asking about from Finder

Hold the "Option" key down when invoking QuickLook.


Optionally click the icon in the upper right corner of its Window
