I had a bunch of PICT resources that I didn't want anyone to muck about with, or copy, etc. I'd been trying to work out a way of converting these to another non-obvious resource type, and even went as far as starting to write a conversion program. As far as I know, ResEdit doesn't allow you to change resource types. But the feature is already is Resourcerer. Just select all the PICT resources, and change them to the new Resource identifier, such as "FRED". Then use GETRESOURCE or GET1RESOURCE instead of GETPICTURE. Easy Peasy. Phil.
