What is a .TGA file?

TGA files are saved in the Targa raster graphic format, which may store raw, uncompressed image data or lossless compressed image data. The format was released in 1984 by AT&T EPICenter, which became Truevision in 1987 and is now part of Avid Technology. After its release, the format was adopted by a large number of programs in the 1980s and 90s because of its simplicity and portability between platforms. Now, the most extensive use of the format occurs in the video, animation, and gaming industries.

You may encounter TGA files in a variety of ways. A friend or coworker may share a photo saved as a TGA file with you in an email. You may also come across a TGA file if you are a gamer or work in a field that uses animations and gaming graphics. No matter how you found the TGA file, File Viewer Plus can open and edit the Targa graphic, as well as convert it to another image format, such as JPEG, GIF, or PNG.
