How to open TGA file?

What is TGA file extension?

Files with the TGA extension are most often associated with bitmap graphics. They can be images with different bit resolutions (8, 16, 24 or 32 bits per pixel), but a maximum of 24 bits can be allocated to the RGB color space. This format was developed by Truevision for TARGA and VISTA graphics cards. Data in TGA files can be compressed or not. In addition to graphic data, they may contain metadata that describe them. This format is supported by many programs for viewing and processing graphics.

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the TGA file.

What else may cause problems?
There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the TGA file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).
First - the TGA file may be incorrectly linked (associated) with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this link by yourself. To do this, right-click on the TGA file # that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the TGA file should be solved forever.
Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the TGA file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
