TGA to GIF 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 GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) is an 8-bit image file format that is widely used to display animation and graphics. It supports up to 256 colors and is often used to display small web graphics for logos or simple animations. It can be used both for static images and for animated images, and generally compresses images better than other image formats.
The GIF format supports data compression, but does not support animation or sound. It is also limited in its ability to provide better image quality than other image formats such as JPEG. However, GIFs are more suitable for use on the web because of their small size and relatively fast loading times.
