A CUR file, short for "Cursor file," is a type of computer file used to store custom mouse cursor graphics. These files are primarily employed in graphical user interfaces (GUIs) to replace the default cursor with a user-defined one. CUR files are particularly common in Windows operating systems, where users can personalize their cursors to enhance the overall look and feel of their desktop environment.
CUR files typically contain multiple images of varying sizes and color depths to accommodate different display settings and cursor sizes. These images are often stored in a format that supports transparency, such as PNG or BMP, to allow for smooth blending with the background. Users can select a CUR file as their cursor, and the operating system will use the appropriate image from the file depending on the cursor's current state, such as when it's pointing, waiting, or performing other actions.
Custom cursors are not only a cosmetic feature but also serve as a functional aid, making it easier for users to locate and interact with elements on the screen. By creating or downloading CUR files, users can add a personal touch to their computing experience and improve the accessibility and aesthetics of their computer interface.

PNG files are a widely used graphics file format used in areas where high-quality images (often with transparency) are required while also retaining a small file size. They are one of the most common formats of file used for web and print mediums and are particularly useful for logos, icons, and other images where multi-level transparency is desired.
The format itself was created in the 1990's with the main aim of storing computer graphics in a high-quality format while minimising the required storage space. The longer-term aim was to displace the GIF file format and make PNG the number one format for non-lossy, high-quality image formats on the then-burgeoning world wide web.
One of the selling points of the PNG format is its support for multiple levels of transparency, making it superior to the GIF format, which can only handle a single level of transparency. Also, like GIFs, the PNG format supports palletizing image colors down to 256 or 16 colors to help reduce the file size of the PNG.

If you are converting your CUR file to a format that implements lossy-compression then yes, the quality will be reduced however the loss in quality is usually not noticeable and can result in much smaller file sizes.
No. When converting your CUR file our tool will not perform any resizing of your image and the resulting file will be the same resolution as your uploaded CUR file.
