QuickDraw

The underlying graphics display system for Apple Macintosh computers. The QuickDraw system enables programs to create and manipulate graphical objects. Because all Macintosh programs use QuickDraw, they all share a common look.

There are several versions of QuickDraw that offer different color capabilities and other features. The newest, called QuickDraw GX, supports 16.7 million colors.

QuickDraw is currently used primarily for displaying images on monitors, but some printers use it as well.
