What is a pct file?

The PCT (PICT) file format is a metafile format for graphic images used by the original Apple Macintosh computer. PCT files are versatile in their ability to contain other types of graphics files. PCT files are the native format for Apple QuickDraw, Apple’s application programming interface. PCT files contain Apple QuickDraw’s set of rules and are capable of 4-bit to 24-bit color bitmap graphics. PCT files feature 1-bit of 16-bit opcodes, depending on what version of QuickDraw the file was created with. Though saving a graphic in PCT created a convenient way to transport files, PDF has overcome PCT as the native metafile format for Mac OS X.  Other examples of raster image files are JPEGTIFF and BMP.
