Truevision TGA, often referred to as TARGA, is a raster graphics file format created by Truevision Inc. (now part of Avid Technology). It was the native format of TARGA and VISTA boards, which were the first graphic cards for IBM-compatible PCs to support Highcolor/truecolor display. This family of graphic cards was intended for professional computer image synthesis and video editing with PCs; for this reason, usual resolutions of TGA image files match those of the NTSC and PAL video formats. TARGA is an acronym for Truevision Advanced Raster Graphics Adapter;TGA is an initialism for Truevision Graphics Adapter.
Simple graphic format in color. Use 24 bits per pixel: 8 for red, 8 for green, 8 for blue if the maximum gray value is 255, uses 16 bits for red, 16 for green and 16 for blue if the value is greater than 255 and less than 65536. a PPM file is plain text and can be modified with a single processor, there is also not readable binary version of word processing normally. It is related to the PGM (grayscale) and PBM formats (black and white).
