.pal File Extension

Developer: Corel
File type: Painter Custom Palettes File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .pal. Files with the file extension .pal can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .pal files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .pal file?

The settings files Corel Painter contain are known as Painter Custom Palettes Files or PAL files. Corel Painter is a popular application for digital arts. The PAL files do not contain the actual files created through this application, but since they are settings files, they contain the workspace palette layouts, including the layers, the navigator palettes, the mixer and the color which are used to create digital arts through the software. In other words, these PAL files are what allow users to customize the layouts of their screen according to their preference. Since these files are not the actual paintings created by the user through the Painter application, users cannot manually save them. But once they are used by the artist to his or her paintings, the artist can already save the overall painting to the computer which will then have a different file extension. Aside from Corel Painter, PAL files can also be used by other graphic or photo editors.

how to open a .pal file?

Launch a .pal file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .pal file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .pal files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .pal file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .pal file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .pal files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .pal. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
