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 used to store bitmap and vector images natively on Macintosh computers. It was used for laying out and sharing images between programs. It used JPEG compression algorithms and RLE encoding. Today, the PICT format is used in the Windows environment with the PCT extension.
