    Hi

    Is it possible to add functionality to the Quickview feature in leopard so that i can view more image file formats like IFF, OpenEXF etc...?

    I assume it's linked to the Preview application so if that can view them then QuickView should be able to too?

    help appreciated

    Quickview has nothing to do with Preview. Quickview has a plugin architecture that allows developers to add Quickview functionality for their own file formats. If the developers of the applications you are using to view\edit those files have no written plugins your only options are to find a plugin online (most likely one does not exist) or write you own of you know details of the file format
