A summary of the format, focussing on digital preservation concerns.
Difficult to access, but supported by dcraw.
There is apparently enough info on the web to deal with that format, try here
or try Image Converter by Bitten Apps, the current changelog specifically states "Fixed a bug where the application would refuse to open QuickTake PICT files."
List of know preservation issues amd risks that this format can suffer from.
Now there's an obsolete format. From Apple's abortive foray into the very early days of digital photography. I have a stack of them from a trip to Australia many years ago. The filetype is .pict but [typically Apple] a proprietory version of .pict that nothing else can read and [also typically Apple] support for the format has been dropped from Quicktime since the pre-OSX days.
Not much hope for file formats surviving into the future when even their own progenitors abandon them, after a few years!
