If you installed TeXShop using MacTeX ( http://tug.org/mactex/ ), then
you have everything you need, and TeX will find the packages you use.

So you just have to convert you *.PICT files to *.pdf, as Reinhard said.

For further questions about MacTeX and Mac specific front-ends (like
TeXShop), I would advise you to subscribe to the TeX on Mac OS X Mailing
