PCT, Apple Macintosh QuickDraw Image (.pct)

The PCT Raster image file format

PCT files are created using the Apple QuickDraw program. Storing images in a raster as well as vector format is supported by PCT files. However, unless you are using a Windows computer, you may never see Apple QuickDraw images saved in this format. The most commonly used extension for these images when using a Macintosh computer is PICT.

Technical details of PCT files

PCT files have the same specifications as PICT files have, with the difference that they are typically used on Microsoft Windows computers. With the adaptation of PDF by Mac OS X, the PCT and PICT format have been deprecated.
