The PyramidCreateOpt property is used to set the pyramid options for displaying a large raster dataset, which has a dimension greater than 1024 and does not have pyramids, in ArcCatalog or ArcMap.
Pyramids is used to enhance display performance. For displaying raster datasets that do not have pyramids, ArcMap provides the following options: always build pyramids, never build pyramids, prompt a dialog box asking to build or not.
This method does not control pyramid building when you save as a raster dataset.
