I have lost the ability to see a preview of image files (eg. gif, jpg etc) using Windows Explorer.

Looking at my registry I note that none of the image keys have a "ShellEx" key.

Did you change your setup so that VIEW AS WEB PAGE has changed which often facilitates this mode?  

Or perhaps under Folder Options and file types, you've associated another program and the properties relative to open view, and other commands and some specific file types.

It helps to know what you did recently to change your environment and help expeditiously find the culprint.

If more complicated, please post further.  Perhaps you've installed something new which took control of that image type.  Or ...perhaps these images were moved from a folder you've defined with QuickView options via right click and properties and QuickView select there to one which doesn't give the quickview options.

Originally the file associations were changed by Photoshop which I removed from my system.

I then associated most of the image files to IE. At present the only images that Windows Explorer will show are JPEG files nomatter if I have quick view checked or whether I have explorer in Web mode.

Those Microsoft MVP's are great. When they see a problem enough they put the fix on their own web sites. Lee Chapel and Mr Scary are the best though.
