Certainly. Qt supports some powerful formats, e.g. PNG. So open a image 
with PIL, and serialize it to memory using cStringIO as a PNG. The load 
it as QImage from there, providing the data as binary string by the 
means of a QByteArray. Module struct or ctypes might come in handy here.

Other data formats may be even better - try whatever suits you best.

However I don't have code - but I guess you get the gist.
