Convert a GIF into a CUR file


How do you create a .cur (for a mouse cursor), from a GIF image file?

What tool or process can I use?

Best Solution

You need to use a cursor creator, which is pretty much just a bitmap with some header data. I'd use Irfanview if you do not use Visual Studio or what not. If you use Visual Studio, just create a new cursor, and copy and paste the image data right into the editor... I'm sure I could whip up a tool that does this for you on a file basis, but I'm sure they are many tools out there already.
