CUT File Format

Dr. Halo Bitmap

The CUT file extension is associated with a device-independent file format also known as a Dr. Halo Bitmap Image File. The CUT file references a color palette stored in a separate .PAL file. A CUT file stores small bitmap images, since it supports 8 bits per pixel, for a total of 256 colors. By providing a reference to a color palette in a separate file, a CUT file enables users to change an image’s colors without changing the original image file.

The CUT file format was developed by Dr. Halo Software for use with the company’s applications, including Dr. Halo III (Windows); the publisher appears to be defunct. The CUT file format is also now supported by a variety of other software: Microsoft Picture Viewer, Okino Multi-Media Editor and Viewer, Newera Graphics Converter Pro, and Corel PaintShop Photo Pro X3 for Windows; Lemkesoft GraphicConverter for Mac; Equilibrium DeBabelizer for Windows and Mac; and XnView for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

MIME type: application/cut, application/GraphicConverter, application/x-cut, image/bmp, image/cut, image/gif, image/x-halo-cut
