You can only use "cut" for vector graphics like *.svg, *.dxf, *.ai, etc.  Vector graphics define a series of paths, these can be used as a path for the machine.  Raster graphics like *.bmp, *.jpg, etc. define a grid of pixels, so every pixel has to be visited, which is why it scans back and forth.  For more info on the difference between the two see here.
