Macintosh Pict Format (PCT)

Macintosh Pict (PCT) files are produced using Macintosh QuickDraw, and are used in desktop publishing and imaging applications.

PCT Vector files can be read and written as raster images in the non-vector toolkits. LEADTOOLS supports multiple page files when reading and writing PCT images as raster images. Vector read/write support for these formats is provided in the LEADTOOLS Vector Imaging toolkit and is unlocked when the Vector features are unlocked.

The PCT supports loading QuickTime compressed data.

LEADTOOLS supports loading this format as raster image, vector or SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) document.

File constants associated with this file format are:

Constant Raster Read Support Raster Write Support Vector Read Support Vector Write Support Description
