In LiveQuartz 2.4 and future versions, LiveQuartz always opens images in RHIF format.

For prior versions :

By default, LiveQuartz keeps the document in its file format.

For example,

I open a JPEG file in LiveQuartz, LiveQuartz opens the JPEG file.
I open a PNG file in LiveQuartz, LiveQuartz opens the PNG file.
I open a RHIF file in LiveQuartz, LiveQuartz opens the RHIF file.

This allows LiveQuartz to be used as an external editor in iPhoto.

Beginning with LiveQuartz 2.0.2, the default behavior stays the same but there is an option in preferences ("Open all image files as LiveQuartz files") to tell LiveQuartz to open all types of image files into a native RHIF document (new file on disk).
This is the same behavior as what you see when opening for example an excel file in Apple Numbers.
