What is a TARGA file?
A TARGA file is a raster graphic file format designed by Truevision. The format supports 8, 16, 24, or 32 bits per pixel at a maximum of 24 bits for RGB colors as well as an 8-bit alpha channel. The file is often used in video games to store textures.
The Targa format, which stands for Truevision Advanced Raster Graphics Adapter, was designed by Truevision and later acquired by Avid Technology.
