What is PICT file?
Picture File is an image file that is common on PCs. It contains a single bitmap (a black and white picture) that can be saved with a file extension of PICT. Files that use the PICT format are typically the result of scanning an original photographic print for digital output. The name comes from the Macintosh Picture, which was used on Apple computers as a means of displaying pictures taken by digital cameras on their monitors.
