Format for photos taken with a Kodak camera. It contains an array of electronic image data that was recorded from the camera's photosensitive elements. It is a RAW image, which offers considerable potential for processing photos to compensate for exposure, white balance, and other parameters without loss of image quality.
This format was developed by Apple for storing vector and bitmap images with metadata. It was the main format for the QuickDraw graphics software. PCT supports 32-bit and 24-bit images. At the moment, the format is obsolete and has been superseded by more functional solutions.
