# 1 screen shots in TGA format?
02-20-2010, 12:44 PM
On 2/16/2010 around 11pm EDT, I took 3 screen shots. Those screen shots were saved in TGA format instead of JPG. Whet the hec is TGA and how do I convert to JPG? These images are not viewable.

Thanks,

it's called the Targa Graphic format. One program you can use to view these images is IrfanView (Google it, should have no issues finding it).

I've noticed that screencaps taken during certain game sequences, such as warping in or out, get captured in TGA rather than the standard format. Don't know why, maybe someone else can answer that part for ya.

But go get a copy of irfanview and you'll be able to view those TGA's just fine. And I think it will convert them to your favorite format as well, so you can always convert them to JPG for easier viewing.

Hope it helps!
