I recently figure ouy how to take screenshots. The problem is they save in a TGA file format. My normal programs can't view them.(i.e. KotOR0000.tga) Is there a program to view them or is there something I did wrong to save them? I use printscreen to take the screenshots.





Thanks
Lord Dragoon

you didn't do anything wrong. you just need a program that can read .tga formats. i know that photoshop can do this, but i'm not too sure about most other programs.

No, you didn't do anything wrong.. the .tga format is what the game saves the images as (best quality IMO)...

If you don't have the funds to fork over for Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro, try GIMP... it's free, and from all the feedback here seems to have alot of good features as well..

Then, you can go here to learn how to use alot of the features:

XNview is a brilliant small program that reads almost every format, converts to for example jpeg - and is free! (no spy/adware either)
