About TGA format: Truevision Advanced Raster Graphics Adapter (TARGA) -
Format by Truevision, Inc, used to support image
capturing and game textures; used with a series of high-resolution
graphics adaptors released under the TARGA name.
The Targa TGA format was developed by Truevision for their Targa and Vista products.
The TGA format file is widely used by high-end paint programs and ray tracing packages. It can handle images with up to sixteen million unique colors. It is an industry standard but is not as widely supported as PCX or TIFF formats. The TGA format was designed for use on systems that use MS-DOS color applications.
TGA files may be saved compressed (run length encoded) or not compressed. Since Windows does not recognize 16 & 32 bits per pixel, some applications will treat them as 24 bits per pixel. A 16 bits per pixel image will be up-graded to 24 bits per pixel, and a 32 bits per pixel image will be down-graded to a 24 bits per pixel image. This procedure will not affect the image since the 8 extra bits of a TGA 32 bits per pixel file are used to store Alpha or transparency information.
TGA format supports 8, 16, 24, 32 bits per pixel - not compressed.
TGA format supports 8, 16, 24, 32 bits per pixel - RLE compression.
