How to convert TGA to JPG with TGA Viewer How to convert TGA to JPG with TGA Viewer

Every computer user that ever happened to deal with digital photos is most likely to know what exactly JPEG/JPG files are, as this type of files is the most popular graphics format for storing pictures on local drives. The same can not be said about the TGA format (also known as Targa image file). This old graphics format was designed by Truevision and now is mostly used for storing textures and other graphical elements for computer video games, as it can easily be implemented into applications. Therefore, if you are not a graphical designer or have a special use for TGA images, converting them into the popular and widely-supported JPEG format is a good idea.
