TGA to BMP converter
TGA is a raster graphics file format developed by Truevision, Inc. It is primarily used for gaming purpose. It is a popular format for storing high-dynamic range content and intermediary frames for video production. TGA files come in uncompressed and compressed form and can be 8-bit or 16-bit. It can also contain 24-bit or 32-bit RGB color values.
A TGA file is composed of one or more Image Descriptors (ID), which contain information about the format and size of the image, as well as some other useful information such as bits per pixel, palette colors, etc. The TGA file format also supports various compression techniques such as RLE and ZIP compression.
The BMP (Bitmap) file format is a raster graphics file type commonly used to store digital images. BMP files are typically uncompressed and can range from simple monochrome images to 24-bit color images with full color depth and lossless compression. The BMP format supports multiple color depths, including 8-bit, 16-bit, and 32-bit color. It also supports alpha blending and other features.
BMP files are widely used to create logos, web graphics, icons, screenshots, and loading images in games. They can be opened with any text editor or image editing software. Web browsers can also display BMP files. Microsoft Windows and other operating systems support the BMP file type natively.
