The PIC file format was first associated with PC Paint and later on with its developed version, Pictor Paint. It was one of the first formats accepted as a standard under the DOS platform, and it was developed by John Bridges. PIC files represent raster images, which can use an up to 24-bit color range. The advanced versions of PC Paint and Pictor Paint support image compression and the PIC files created using these programs are device-independent.
The PNG (Portable Network Graphics) file format was designed in the mid-1990s as an improved alternative to the previously existing JPG and GIF formats, and as an extension which would be particularly web-friendly. In time, PNG files have gained a wide popularity and are highly appreciated at the moment for their ability to provide a lossless compression of images, which translates in high-quality and detailed renderings.
The quick and simple way to handle your files is to get a quality piece of software, such as reaConverter. Although it is fast, this software is extremely efficient in managing a wide range of conversions. As you will soon realize, reaConverter will help you avoid spending countless hours trying to figure out how to convert PICs. But at the same time, it will allow you to apply a wide range of editing options.
reaConverter is quick to download, install and launch, and you don't need to be an IT specialist in order to understand in a few minutes how it operates.
Start reaConverter and load all the .pic files you intend to convert into .png because, as opposed to most free online converters, reaConverter supports batch conversion. So you can save the time and energy you would lose with doing repetitive operations.
Select PICs from a folder or by drag-and-dropping them directly into the reaConverter window.
Go to the Saving options tab and decide where you want to save new .png files. You can also spend a few more moments to apply additional editing to the images prepared for conversion.
Then pick the PNG as output format. To help you do this, a series of buttons is conveniently placed at the bottom of the reaConverter window, so you can simply press on the one you need or click Plus button to add new options.
Then simply press the Start button and your conversion will begin in no time!Try Free Trial Version
