When you view a PowerPoint presentation, you may notice that one or more of your graphics are not displayed. Instead you may see a placeholder for the graphic that contains the following message:
Most likely, the graphic is using a QuickTime compression scheme, such as JPEG. With PowerPoint for the Macintosh, you can import PICT graphics that use JPEG compression. Adobe PhotoShop and some other graphic programs can save PICT files with JPEG compression. If you move a presentation that contains one of these graphics to another computer or a different platform, you may encounter this problem. These PICT JPEG files require QuickTime to display or decompress the image. If QuickTime is not present, PowerPoint displays the "QuickTime PICT" message.
NOTE: If you are using a Macintosh computer and see this message, you should check to see if QuickTime is present. QuickTime, if correctly installed, is located in the Extensions folder. If you are running System 7.5 or later, run Extension Manager, located in the Control Panels folder, and make sure that QuickTime is enabled.
Both of these methods are to be performed on the Macintosh computer system.
Method 1: Save in Macintosh PICT formatRe-import the graphic without JPEG compression. To do this, follow these steps. NOTE: The following example uses Adobe PhotoShop version 3.0.
Method 2: Cut and Paste As Picture.
