Importing anti-aliased PICT files (Mac OS)

Choose File > Import > Anti-aliased PICT to import object-oriented PICT files (such as those created with MacDraw and Canvas) as smooth-edged, or anti-aliased, images. Because the entire PICT file must be held in memory for this module to operate, you may not be able to use the module with large PICT files.

The Anti-aliased PICT dialog box indicates the current file size and dimensions. To change the image dimensions, enter new values for Width and Height. The file size is then updated. To maintain image proportions, select Constrain Proportions.

You can choose Grayscale or RGB color mode for an anti-aliased PICT file. Importing PICT resources (Mac OS)

The PICT Resource module lets you read PICT resources from a fileā€”for example, from another application. To open a PICT resource, choose File > Import > PICT Resource.

To preview a resource, click Preview. Click the arrow buttons to step forward and backward through the resources. Note that the number displayed for Resource refers to the resource's position in ascending order in the resource fork and not to the resource's identification number.

Note: In Photoshop, you can also open a file in the PICT Resource file format by choosing File > Open, choosing All Documents from the Show pop-up menu, selecting the file you want to open, choosing PICT Resource from the Format pop-up menu, and clicking Open. However, the Open command automatically opens the first resource in the file and does not display any other PICT resources in the file.
