What is PICT?

The PICT format was originally developed by Apple Computer, in the mid-1980s. This 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.
