Did your computer fail to open a PAL file? We explain what PAL files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your PAL files.

What is a PAL file?

The .pal file extension is most commonly associated with color palette files used by a variety of software applications. The PAL files contain a palette of colors used by the programs. These files normally store RGB values and are used to alter the colors of an image being worked with in the associated application. Dr. Halo and Harvard Graphics both use the .pal extension for color palette files.

The .pal file extension is also used for Tree Professional Palm creator files, compressed files, Lotus Freelance files, Personal Ancestral files, ZX SPECTRUM emulator files and Rise of Nations campaign media files.
