This format is widely used with Macintosh graphics and page-layout applications as an intermediary file format for transferring files between applications. This format is especially effective at compressing images that contain large areas of solid color.
A file format used with Macintosh applications and computers that can contain both bit-mapped and object-oriented images. PICT II is the current standard and supports 32-bit color (more than 16 million colors).
A still-image file format developed by Apple Computer. PICT files can contain both vector images and bitmap images, as well as text and an alpha channel. PICT is a ubiquitous image format on Mac OS computers.
A common format for defining bitmapped object-oriented images on the Macintosh often used as a preview for EPS files. The more recent format (PICT2) supports 24-bit color. The PICT format is not recommended for use in files intended for separation.
An acronym, without a strict definition, for a metafile file format. PICT files contain bitmapped or object oriented information. Some people love PICT files because they are excellent for importing and printing black and white graphics, like logos. Others hate them because they don't always retain all of the information in the original image.
(PICTure) The primary Macintosh graphics file format. It holds QuickDraw vector images, bitmapped images and text and is the Mac counterpart to the Windows Metafile (WMF) format. When PICT files are converted to the PC, they use the .PCT file extension.
A Macintosh picture file format that does not apply compression to an image. It is therefore termed a lossless format. PICT file format maintains the same quality level from copy to copy. The PICT file format is recommended when exporting a still image from a DV clip if the intent is to reuse the image in a movie in iMovie.
An Apple Macintosh file format for saving raster (pixel based) images. The file format is uncompressed and therefore loss-less. The file format typically cannot be opened natively on Windows Operating System, however some cross platform applications such as Adobe Photoshop can read the file format on both the Macintosh and Windows Operating Systems.
PICT is an image file format that is used primarily for screen-oriented graphics (most commonly in a Macintosh environment). Despite the fact that the file architecture is capable of supporting the full content of very detailed graphic files, it is not used as a standard for laying out print documents.
Picture — A common bitmap graphic file format. File format for object-oriented graphics. PICT files can be written and read by many applications, and most page layout programs can import (place) PICT files.
The PICT format was originally developed by Apple Computer in the mid-1980s. The PICT format supports RGB files with a single alpha channel, and indexed-color, grayscale, and Bitmap files without alpha channels. The PICT format is especially effective at compressing images with large areas of solid color.
A graphics file format used primarily on Macintosh computers. PICT files can contain both object-oriented and bit-mapped graphics. There are two types: PICT I and PICT II. PICT II is the current standard and supports colour up to 24-bit.
Another type of image format. A PICT file can contain black and white, color, or grayscale information, as can a TIFF or EPS file. A PICT image uses a language called QuickDraw to render the graphic. QuickDraw is limited in precision and cannot contain complex curves or special text effects, making a PICT image a bad choice for imagesetting to film or plate. A PICT file is acceptable for laser printer or low resolution output.
Not an acronym, though some people think this stands for Prehistoric, Incompatible, Crummy Tiff-substitute. A standard file format that allows for the exchange of graphic images (usually bitmapped) on the Macintosh.
A picture file format developed by Apple Computer, Inc. for use on Macintosh computers. The PICT format is adequate for storing and displaying data at 72 dpi, using the Macintosh screen, but is not sophisticated enough for higher-quality work.
Personalizes the display panel of the receiver with favorite stills and moving images. Images and graphics created on a computer can be saved on a SD card and upload to the head unit. Screensaver images can be automatically accessed and changed like a slideshow. The Image Link function allows linking an image – a photo of a musician, jacket cover, or anything else – with an album of MP3/WMA music files, making it easy to identify the music currently playing.
PICT is a graphics file format introduced on the original Apple Macintosh computer as its standard metafile format. It allows the interchange of graphics (both bitmapped and vector), and some limited text support, between Mac applications, and was the native graphics format of the Quickdraw Manager.
Pict is a statically typed programming language based on the pi-calculus, one of very few languages to do this. Work on the language began at the University of Edinburgh in 1992. The language is still at an experimental stage.
