    Re: how to create a PICT resource?
    I just open an image for example abc.jpg by the applicaation Preview, you can just double click the image file, Preview will be automatically launched. Then Command-C to copy the image into clipboard, and follow the steps 1.1 and 1.2. So, you can have a resource file with PICT resource.
    If you want to know how to create a single file PICT as the resource. I think you can convert the images files from certain image format to MAC PICT by photoshop.
