Truevision raster image file format
TGA is a file extension associated with raster graphics formats. Raster graphics are created for "Truevision Advanced Raster Graphic Adapter" boards, which were designed for IBM compatible PCs. The extension can display highcolor/truecolor images.
TGA is a raster image file format from Truevision Inc. (a part of Avid Technology) created in the ‘80s. Truevision TGA format is sometimes shortened as TARGA. In its glory, it was the native format for VISTA and TARGA boards. Game publishers used this format to create texture files for their games.
Yes, TGA is a lossless file format, meaning the file is not compressed so there's no loss of data. This makes it TGA ideal to create icons and line drawings.
TGA files can be opened with Adobe Photoshop, GIMP, Paint.NET, Corel PaintShop Pro, TGA Viewer, and some other popular photo and graphics tools as well.
TGA files can be uncompressed, or compressed using a run-length compression scheme. ImageConverter Plus allows creating both compressed and uncompressed TGA images in singular and batch mode.
