When I am in file explorer and hovering over a filename which is an image, I would like to see a preview of the image and display its width and height dimensions. It needs to be quick.

Any such tools like a shell extension?

QTTabBar is a toolbar of Explorer, it provides "Tab Browsing" feature to Explorer. But one of its features is what you want. When you hover over common image formats it shows a preview of the image like a tooltip.

QtTabBar rocks! Can't live without it. Unobtrusively augments Windows explorer. – Umber Ferrule Jul 27 '09 at 0:06

XNView Shell extension does something similar with only registering a dll. It shows the preview of the image when you right click the image file in the context menu.
