It's great to have 1:1 scale for small images, instead of resizing to panel size.

This is a macOS QuickLook issue, it's the same in Finder's preview. Here's the original post:

The "floating window" version of Quick Look (pressing Space in Finder) doesn't upscale small images. According to Mike, we'll see this feature in NC in 1.2.x :)

Don't need to decode whole image, I have a small set of code to read size of images only from header. So it's possible to resize preview panel to match small images size. Are you interested?

It's not a problem to manually get some info about the image.
The problem is that NC does nothing specific about the content provided to QuickLook - macOS manages it.
And adding a special treatment for some types of content (like images in this case) is a very slippery road which leads to creation of bloatware like ACDSee, and I have no desire to go that way whatsoever.
