afair, only on OSX, QuickTime is used for image reading.
on w32 you have libjpeg and libtiff support.
on linux you have ImageMagick.

the reason why quicktime is not (optionally) used on w32 is beyond my 
knowledge; i guess it is just a matter of getting the preprocessor 
defines right (from __APPLE__ to HAVE_QUICKTIME); most likely it is like 
it is for legacy reasons.

on linux we check for ImageMagick, and if this is not present libjpeg 
and libtiff.
ImageMagick will open pretty much any image format.
