You create it manually, or you just use a .qcow2 file to begin with for
your image.  Then:

1) if you specify no snapshot, a temporary .qcow2 file is created on top
so data is not destroyed

2) if you specify a snapshot, that snapshot is preserved (so you don't
lose the base state even though the file changes)
