What is a cut file?

CUT files are a device-independent file format used for transferring image data between hardware and operating systems. The CUT file extension was originally developed for Dr. Halo image software, but is now supported by a number of other applications.

CUT files are well documented, widely used, and easy to read. However, the format is unsuitable for storing deep-pixel images such as PCX and JPEG files as it lacks an appropriate compression scheme.

CUT files typically pair with PAL files — the CUT file contains the image data while the PAL files contains the color palette. CUT files may have up to 256 colors, selectable from an 8-bit palette. Without a corresponding PAL file, CUT files appear as grayscale images.
