Yep.

The NSImage class itself is capable of managing image data in a variety of formats. The specific list of formats is dependent on the version of the operating system but includes many standard formats such as TIFF, JPEG, GIF, PNG, and PDF among others. AppKit manages each format using a specific type of image representation object, whose job is to manage the actual image data. You can get a list of supported formats using the methods described in Determining Supported Types of Images.


It’s odd though that the link in the doc is a link to the same doc.

Oh? It says so right in the class overview.
