The CUR file format is a graphics file format whose main purpose is to store custom mouse cursor graphics. As this format is designed for cursor graphics, it has support for an alpha channel to allow for transparency within the image.

The format can store image data at varying color depths and resolutions, enabling the file size to be reduced if the number of colors in the image is optimized for a lower color depth. For example, a black and white CUR image can be stored at a color depth of 1-bit or monochrome, saving considerable storage space.

CUR files are a legacy file format that can be opened with certain image editing applications that still support this format; alternatively, we have a set of CUR image conversion tools designed to convert CUR files to other, more modern formats, such as PNG.

GIF files have been around since the dawn of the internet and are a popular choice of format for storing images and animations. Images stored within a GIF file can be stored at low bits per pixel to reduce the size of the GIF file, leading to improved download speeds. Reducing the number of bits per pixel, if done correctly, can lead to no noticeable difference in image quality.

Along with static images, GIF files are also capable of storing short video or animation sequences. This capability has proved very popular, with animated GIFs being created and used on websites and social media. GIF files are also a popular format for storing and transmitting internet memes.

With newer and more capable formats such as PNG and WEBP taking over as the default standard for images and animations on the web, the GIF format is slowly declining in popularity. Support for GIF files within image editing software is still strong and will likely continue.
