Can you be more specific about what it is you're trying to do? You can use glance image-create to upload the vm disk image into OpenStack, but maybe you are looking for something else? Please let us know what you have tried and what documentation you have looked at.

Actually I have installed a vm on a kvm hypervisor! and I want to make a template out of it sothat I can put it into a Virtual Image Library! I know how to do it with a VMware VM (it is so easy using the vSphere Client) but I'm not sure how to do that to a KVM VM! I hope you see what I mean. Thanx ^^

You may stop your instance VM, and go to volume, then select action upload to Image. (You can select format as QCOW2 or ISO)
