Save as pict

I just installed CS5 Photoshop. I cannot save any image as a pict file. The option to save as pict is not there. Has this been removed? thanks

Yes, support for writing PICT files has been removed.
PICT was a QuickDraw format, and requires QuickDraw and Carbon to work with.
Photoshop CS5 moved to Cocoa APIs, and can no longer work with PICT images.  We kept some minimal PICT support for a subset of PICT that didn't need QuickDraw, but we only read it.

  • Is there any way I can program "Capture" to save pnp.picts always under the same name, without a date ?

    Is there any way I can program "Capture" to save pnp.picts on the desk, but always under the same name, without a date ?
    It may be sound weird, but I use it in a very special way, and I would like, like photoshop, that capture just replace
    the previous pict by the new one..without any warning.

    There is no way to go back from an XFA form to an Acroform even with Acrobat Pro, still less with Acrobat. You either need to remake the form, or change your plans to use a third party viewer - Adobe have an excellent range of programs they would like you to use!

  • Image Events save as PICT broken?

    An old script that worked in Lion is not working in Mountain Lion.
    Here is a test example:
    tell application "Image Events"
      launch
              set theImage to open "/tmp/c13.jpg"
              save theImage as PICT in file "/tmp/image.pict"
      close theImage
    end tell
    If the output file already exists, this script does nothing and does not complain. If the output file does not already exist, I get an error that the image "doesn't understand the save message".
    Other image file formats besides PICT work fine.
    Any ideas?

    Hi,
    The QuickDraw API (Macintosh PICT format) have long been obsolete (they've mostly been
    deprecated since Mac OS X 10.4).  But we still use them in a few places
    (in 32-bit mode) for backwards compatibility. (QuickDraw APIs are unavailable in 64-bit mode).
    Apple will remove the 32-bit system libraries in some future version of OS X and dropping support for 32-bit apps.
    Solution : Try selecting 'Open in 32 Bit Mode' in the Finder's info window for the application "Image Events"
    I know it works for Preview on OS X 10.8 (it can still open PICT format), but I don't know for "Image Events".

  • Can I extract images from Apple Works?

    Hi!
    I am a graphic designer. A client just sent me a disk of artwork, which turned out to be a single Apple Works file with a dozen high-resolution images in it. Is there a simple way to extract those images (for use in other applications such as Photoshop) at their original resolution?
    I know all the data is in there, since the file weighs in at about 90mb. But I can't drag-and-drop to the desktop, and cutting/pasting seems to give me reduced-sized images. (In other words, if a photo is 4" x 3" in the AppleWorks document, I get a 4" x 3" 72dpi image when I paste into Photoshop. )
    edit > picture info does show me the total size of the image, and lets me know which are high-rez. I can click on "show picture bounds" and the image expands to full size, cropped only by the page. However, I cannot cut-and-past that image into PhotoShop... Apple Works doesn't seem to let me copy it at all.
    It would make my day if there turns out to be a simple command or program that could just pull out all embedded images.
    Thanks!

    It's not clear, but do you have AppleWorks that you are opening this document with? If so, open the file, I assume it's an AppleWorks draw document, & Save As… PICT (choose it from the File Format drop-down menu). You could do it as one big image & then crop in Photoshop or copy & paste each image into to a blank AppleWorks draw document & Save As… each one as an individual PICT file.
    PICT is the preferred graphics format for AppleWorks. Any images imported into AppleWorks other than PICT are changed to 72 dpi where PICT retains the native resolution. Exporting/saving as PICT also seems to result in better images. Of course, if the original images weren't PICT when they were put into the AppleWorks file, you're not going to be able to improve them any more.

  • Photo orientation in Slideshow

    I am having a problem whereby when i put portrait pictures into a slideshow, it is presented horizontally. The strange thing is that when opened in preview or photoshop, the image is presented correctly. DVDSP seems to want to lay portrate photos on thier side! Am i missing a 'rotate' setting or something?
    Cheers

    It seems that saving in the same format just makes a note about the rotation that DVDSP doesn't read. Open a PSD in Preview, do a rotate, and Save As PICT. The PICT will read correctly in DVDSP.

  • Problem Saving Self-Contained Presentations

    When I save a self-contained presentation, Keynote saves every pict, movie, sound, theme, etc. BUT I can not find the actual presentation (i.e., the file that ends with .key). Am I missing something?

    The folder IS the file. If you're saving to your HD, it will be named filename.key and when you double click on it, Keynote will open. If you're saving to an external PC formatted drive or a flash drive, those don't understand the way OSX stores information and will show a folder with files inside of it.
    For any .key file you've saved, your can right click or control click on the file and choose "Show Package Contents" and you'll be able to navigate inside the file to see all the parts that make up the presentation. The most important part that brings it all together is the index.xml.gz file. That tells Keynote how to display your presentation using the media included in that "folder".
    Now, if you want to email this to another computer, you'll need to right click or control click on the file and choose "Create Archive of..." and then send the resulting .zip file.

  • Print Quality and Jagged logos

    hi all
    I have my logo in a wp doc, it now prints fine. I had a lot of trouble getting it to print well as it always appeared with jagged edges. If I copy and paste it into another doc it prints bad again. Why does this happen?
    I've noticed that some documents also print a bit 'washed out' while others print nice and sharp.
    So is there an output setting I've missed?
    It's driving me nuts.
    Thanks

    There are two issues at work here. First, AppleWorks changes the resolution of any graphic format except PICT to 72 dpi. The best solution to this problem is to save the image as PICT before inserting into AppleWorks. My favorite for this is GraphicConverter, but you can use Preview or Photoshop Elements or any other application that can save as PICT.
    For the second issue, this is a problem than became more noticeable with AppleWorks 6.2.9 & has something to do with postscript printing. Go to Preferences > General > Topic: Text & turn Fractional Character Widths on.

  • The images on aol come in too large for the email list

    The mail files have changed to a font too big to read effectively-even the welcome sign is cut off-i did not do anything to set it at that size and i can't find a setting change for this

    I scan a paragraph from a newspaper in Photoshop,
    save as PICT, insert into AW and it comes in about
    the size of my fridge! I use "scale by percent" to
    reduce size and then it is unreadable. Word inserts
    the image at acctual size. Is there a way to insert
    the actual size image without it ballooning out into
    something that would coverr my wall?
    Assuming the pics are JPEGs, AW imports them at 72 ppi. So, a picture at a resolution of anything more than 72ppi will be display as you have seen.
    As Appleworks imports PICT files while retaining their original edited sizes,
    I suggest you convert the image(s) to PICT format before importing. (GraphicConverter is a great help here.)
    Hope this helps

  • How to do a Screen Print with Pro keyboard?

    Hi everyone,
    I have tried a multitude of button combination but I cannot figure out how to do a Screen Print in Windows XP...
    I am using a Pro Keyboard from Apple which has black keys.
    Can anyone help me please?
    Rio.

    Hi salmeryigit,
    Thanks you for your response...Funny enogh...F14 was one key I had not tried and it worked!
    Now I am wondering if there is a multiple Key combination that would permit me to Manually Crop only the Part on the Screen I that I need?
    Ex: In OS X I use: Shift + Comand + 4 which works like a charm as it saves the pict file onto my desktop.
    May I also ask you what document you consulted to get the first answer I asked?
    I do appreciate your help.

  • Printing iPhotos in appleworks drawing document

    I previously had a PowerBook G4. I was able to drag iPhotos into Drawing....scale them down and print them very nicely. I just got a MacBook Pro. Now when I scale pictures down they become less sharp and somewhat distorted and definitely not the same quality I had with the G4. Why would there be any difference....I was using the same operating system: 10.4.8 Is there any easy way to correct this?

    Welcome to Apple Discussions nan
    It's not using a MacBook Pro or OS X 10.4.8 that's
    causing the problem, it's AppleWorks 6.2.9. The
    problem with an image other than PICT has been around
    for quite some time but is very noticeable in 6.2.9.
    There are two things you can do to improve the print
    quality.
    1. An old trick that improves print quality with
    AppleWorks 6.2.9 is to turn Fractional Character
    Widths on in Preferences > General > Text. It has
    something to do with post script printing.
    2. Convert the images to PICT before inserting in to
    AppleWorks. AppleWorks changes the resolution of any
    image other than PICT to 72 dpi while PICT retains
    the native resolution. You can use Preview or my
    favorite, Graph
    icConverter, to Save As… PICT.
    THANK YOU so much. Saving to PICT did work....though a few more steps than I had to use before. I will look into GraphicConverter and see if the process is simpler. But I was happy to see how efficiently the Boards worked....and to be back printing good pictures again! I am still confused why my printing method worked so well up to Nov. and then changed so much when I tried it in Jan. Did Apple upgrade inbetween? Anyway thank you for "making my day".

  • Is it possible to insert jpg in appleworks formats??

    Folks:
    I'd like to be able to make a flyer out of a JPG in Appleworks to see if it is more intuitive/user friendly than Open Office doing the same thing. Had some past experience with Appleworks and was thinking it was "out of play" in Snow Leopard, seeing on the forums here that AW works I moved it over from my Tiger computer, but today tried to get the JPG to insert and it (graphic image) and most all of my pictures (JPG) were all greyed out in the "Open file" browser window . . . . What up? Can I get a photo into an AW file format and add some text under it or no? Tried the WP, Paint, and Presentation formats and all showed JPG's as "in limbo"--meaning it can't open it in the file, etc. Trying to do this with "free" or already in the provided apple programs, i.e., no iWork installed, no Pages, no Aperture . . . there is Keynote 1 but I don't think it is a Universal app so it's not in SnoLep. Thanks kindly for any ideers . . . .
    e.e.p.

    I'll assume you're using an AppleWorks draw document although the basics apply to all modes. In the insert or open dialog box, you need to select All Available from the file type drop-down menu.
    JPG is not the best choice for graphics to use in AppleWorks. AppleWorks changes the resolution of any graphic format except PICT to 72 dpi. The best solution to this problem is to save the image as PICT before inserting into AppleWorks. My favorite for this is GraphicConverter, but you can use Preview or Photoshop Elements or any other application that can save as PICT.

  • Importing Animation from Carrara 3D Modeler - Quality / Settings?

    I've done a short animation (about 30 seconds) in Carrara Studio and rendered it to a 720x480 Quicktime file. I tried compressing the file with the Sorenson codec included in Carrara's rendering program, and frankly, the quality was awful when I imported it into iMovie. I then re-rendered the file with no compression (it comes out to over 1 gig) and re-imported it into iMovie, and there were still some aliasing effects visible (and I should note that the aliasing isn't showing up in the QT player). Is it worth trying to re-render this at a higher resolution (maintaining the same proportions) with increased anti-aliasing into the Quicktime format, or should I try rendering this to .AVI (motion JPEG format) and see if I get a better result at the same resolution.
    iMac G5   Mac OS X (10.4.6)  

    I do use the "Animation" codec with PAL resolution (living in PAL land), looks for me crystal sharp... a little too sharp… experimented with "field rendering", but that adds - for me - a litte too much "blurr"... and rendering time doubled, which is on a Cube another days....
    I also need an Alpha Chanal (I compose in FCE)… so I checked that box too...
    For stills, I do use "None" compressor, save as pict, and add a few things in Photoshop ("motion blurr")
    To give you an impression: the Droids in my "trailer", here (work in progress...!) video is compressed with mp4, you don't see "full quality"

  • Importing and printing photos in Appleworks

    If I drag a picture from iPhoto into an AppleWorks document, and then print it, the photo comes out in reduced resolution. (This doesn't occur if I drag the photo into a Word document. In Word, the resolution is the same as I would get when directly printing from iPhoto.)
    AppleCare Technical Support can't suggest a solution. Can anyone help? I am using AppleWorks version 6.2.9.

    I can insert complete photos with no problem if I open them up in PictureViewer (OS 9) and copy and paste from there into Appleworks. PictureViewer seems to deal with the images in a different manner than Premiere.
    HOWEVER recently I wanted to take four images from Photoshop (where I trimmed around them) and import them into Appleworks where I could collage them together. The pictures import and will print without problem if I do not resize them. Re-sizing the images cause pixelation around the edges when printing. The pixelation is not visible on the computer screen. The pictures were imported into Photoshop originally at 72 dpi.
    Is there any way to copy an image (not a complete photo file, i.e., PICT) from Photoshop and import it successfully as a graphic?
    On the other hand, is there an earlier version of Appleworks that works more efficiently with images?

  • How to get best quality titles in DVDSP

    I usually do my titles right in DVDSP. They are not great, a little fuzzy and aliasing.
    One thing I notice, is that submenu titles sometimes "snap in" -- meaning that when you first see them on the screen, they are badly aliased, but then after half a second they become cleaner. I have even had to add long slow transition fade ins to avoid this.
    Why does it do this and what is the best way to create titles in DVDSP.

    The best way to create still menus, is in Photoshop. Photoshop has presets for all sorts of video standards. When you are ready save a PICT version that you will bring into DVD SP.
