Windows Cursor

File extension .cur
File category images
Description Remember the ubiquitous cursor on your Windows PC; the existence of such graphic cursors was made possible by creating CUR files. Cursors come in different forms – arrow, hourglass, or the more recent spinning loop. The first CUR file format to enjoy commercial use was incorporated into Microsoft's Windows 1.0 in 1981. With the introduction of more interactive cursors, users could change their cursor preferences from a list of pre-installed options. However, editing a CUR file itself will be nothing short of a hassle, especially for users without the technical know-how.
Technical details CUR files were developed as an offshoot of the ICO file format, which is simply the rendering of an image at different sizes and shades. To make a CUR file out of ICOs, software engineers tweak the ICO document by including information that defines the cursor's default position on the computer screen. Just like ICO files were improved upon, recent Windows come with ANI files as a replacement for the not-so-dynamic CUR files.

CompuServe Graphics Interchange Format

File extension .gif
File category images
Description GIF, Graphics Interchange Format, is one of the most popular bitmap image formats on the World Wide Web, allowing you to share images. It also supports transparent views of various animations. Such files are used to develop web advertising with sequentially changing pictures and the graphics shell of video files. They use scan-line images with the depth parameters up to 256 colors of the RGB palette. The process of compressing files in GIF does not affect the quality in any way, as there is no loss because of the compression technique. Due to this, it is possible to convert to other formats while preserving the original image properties. Many applications open the extension to view and process images and video content installed on PCs and mobile devices regardless of OS.
Technical details The format was developed by Compuserve specialists, especially for its use in the web environment, which provided broad public access to data on such files. The extension uses the LZW algorithm to carry out a parallel process with the removal of segments containing insufficient information. This ensures the preservation of high-quality pictures. Thanks to the Lempel-Ziv-Welch algorithm, the format handles graphic files with repeating sections well, particularly images with a large number of single-color pixels horizontally. Interlaced data storage is also possible. Scan-line data is compressed to the smallest size. Reducing the number of colors required to create an image is provided by removing shades unnecessary to perform this process. The range of available GIF colors is from 2 (black and white) to 256 while reducing the number of colors leads to a decrease in the file size.
