    Pretty simple question here. Is it possible to copy (Apple + c) a picture that you are looking at in Quick Look?

    I could have sworn that I used to be able to do this but the ability was killed at some OS upgrade point. It's been a while now, so maybe I'm just remembering it too fondly, or maybe I had some program installed at the time that I don't now. I could have sworn I was able to do things like surf through a bunch of album covers in Quick Look, find the one I wanted, use copy shortcut and paste straight into iTunes.

    Actually, that's about the only thing I'd use this for regularly - is it iTunes that for some reason isn't allowing me to do this anymore?

    Not to my knowledge. You can copy text using a hidden terminal enabled feature in OSX. You can share images directly out of QuickLook in OS 10.8, but not copying.

    Cheers
