In this blogpost I describe how to install the DTI-TK NIfTI quicklook plugin for nii files for mac OS.
I want to thank Peter Molfese for making me aware of this program and for showing me how to install it. Below you find a description of the necessary steps he underwent to install it on my computer.
1.) Download the dmg file
On the website from DTI-TK, you can download: DTITK_QuickLook_v2.21.dmg. You might need a NITRIC account for it.
2.) Placing it at the right location
Create a new folder called “Quicklook” in you Library folder (directly in you root directory). You can access the Library folder by pressing the alt-key while being in the Go menu.
Open the downloaded “DTITK_QuickLook_v2.21.dmg” drive and place the file DTITK_QuickLookPlugin.qlgenerator into the new Quicklook folder.
3.) run QLmanage
Run the line
in the terminal.
At the end, the nii quicklook preview should be integrated in Finder.
