QuickDraw picture data.
- macOS 10.0–10.6Deprecated
The PICT format was formally deprecated in OS X v10.4 along with QuickDraw. You should not be explicitly providing or looking for PICT data on the pasteboard.
To aid in this deprecation, if PICT is the only image type on the pasteboard, as is sometimes the case when copying images from 32-bit Carbon applications, a translated image type will be automatically reported and provided by
NSPasteboard. The translated type is added to the types array ahead of PICT so that the deprecated PICT format is not the preferred format. In addition, when an application provides image data to
NSPasteboard, the Carbon Pasteboard Manager will automatically make a PICT translation available to 32-bit Carbon applications.
NSPICTPboard, and its UTI equivalent
k, will appear in a pasteboard's type array retrieved from the existing
NSPasteboard API, it may cease to be reported in future releases.
