# PICT (.pict, .pct, .pic)

 MIME type: image/pictMacintosh graphics format.Was the original metafile format of the Apple Macintosh.PICT is an acronym derived from Picture.Can store raster images and vector graphics.Binary format.Developed in 1984 by Apple.
• PICT Export is available in Mathematica versions for Mac OS X.
• Export fully supports the PICT format for raster images.
• Export exports graphics or any other expression as an image to a PICT file.
• Export["file.pct", expr] creates a PICT image with the same image size as the displayed form of .
• Because PICT is a raster image format, all fonts are rasterized on export.
• Export creates a PICT file by treating expr as specifying element elem.
• Export treats each as specifying the corresponding .
• Export exports expr with the specified option elements taken to have the specified values.
• Export uses rules to specify the elements to be exported.
• See the reference pages for full general information on Export.
• Data representation elements:
 "Data" array of color values "Graphics" Graphics object representing an image "Image" raster image, represented as an Image object "GrayLevels" array of normalized gray-level values
 "RGBColorArray" array of RGBColor objects
• Export by default uses the element for PICT files.
• General option:
 ImageSize Automatic overall image size
Create a raster image and export it to PICT:
Export an arbitrary expression to the PICT format, giving the result as a string:
Mathematica can export arbitrary expressions to PICT:
