View Full Version : No Preview, Dimensions for PICT Files in Snow Leopard Finder

I've only just upgraded to Snow Leopard and I notice that the Finder doesn't provide a preview nor dimensions for PICT image files. This was supported on Leopard. Is Apple deprecating the PICT file format? That might explain it.

I take screenshots using the standard Finder commands. These produce PICT files. I keep these becuase they aren't compressed. I output to JPEG.

I've also noticed, at least on Leopard, that dimensions for images in Finder previews are not provided if the files are on a drive other than the system drive. The files in question now are on the system drive.

I'd appreciate it if anyone knows about this or has seen this phenomenon. Thanks.
