Young Picasso is a paint program for DOS, designed for children. It was developed by Scarborough Digital, later Blueview Software. Some versions of it (at least 1.3-1.5) have an associated .YP raster graphics format.
YP format is a profile of Fastgraph Packed Pixel Run format. It uses a standard color palette, and a special header designed for compatibility. The header is 24 bytes, with two of every 3 bytes having value 0. Whether the header is specific to Young Picasso is unknown.
YP files start with bytes (hex)
50 00 00 50 00 00 52 00 00, containing ASCII characters "P", "P", "R". This probably stands for Packed Pixel Run, not Pablo Picasso's monogram.
