Viewing TGA files

Post by SoCu »

Hi, do you have to install a plug-in to be able to view a TGA file in XnView MP ?
And with XnShell it is not possible to convert to another format either.

The file in Photoshop looks like this:

And in XnViewMP, it looks like this:

I leave two example TAG files to visualize them.

I have not been able to attach them to the post, because it does not let me because of the size of the file.

Hi, I have edited the first post, to put two links of two TGA files, in case someone wants to try.

Hi, if you mean this option, I have tried checking and unchecking the "Set Alpha channel" option, and the image does not look good either way.

If, in the window where the image is displayed, you can set "Use alpha channel" (Control + H), and the image looks Good

But they are not displayed in the "Explorer".

And it is also not displayed when you click on the file to open it in full screen,

in [Load] section, you can change useAlpha=false (xnview.ini), and 'View>Rebuild thumbnails' on selected files
