Convert image files with our easy to use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a TGA (Truevision TGA) file and from this, create a new image saved in the EXR (OpenEXR) format that you can then download and edit/use within image file editors or use for high definition printing applications.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your TGA to EXR.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your TGA file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the TGA to EXR conversion has completed, you can download your EXR file straight away.
We aim to process all TGA to EXR conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds but can be more for larger more complex files so please be patient.
We aim to create the most accurate conversions with our tools. Our tools are under constant development with new features being added every week.
Yes, of course! We do not store the TGA file you submit to us. The resulting EXR file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our TGA to EXR tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.
Full Name: Truevision TGA
Mime Type: image/x-targa
The TGA format was originally defined in 1984 by AT&T EPICenter and later became Truevision following a successful buyout. The format is a raster graphics format for use originally with high-end PC graphics cards intended for use in video editing with the format mainly supporting NTSC and PAL video resolutions.
The format stores images in various levels of color depth starting at 2-bits-per-pixel (bpp) all the way to 32-bit where color would occupy 24-bits with the final 8-bits dedicated to the alpha channel. The format of the file is fairly simple compared to other formats of the time such as BMP and TIFF.
Full Name: OpenEXR
Mime Type: image/x-exr; version="2"
The EXR file format (OpenEXR) is an open source and free image file format developed by Industrial Light & Magic in 1999. The format was originally developed to be a multi channel, high-dynamic range raster image file format which has evolved to include additional features over the years.
The format stores binary image data that can be either 32-bit integer, 16-bit or 32-bit floating point which can also be compressed via a lossy or non-lossy compression method. The OpenEXR library is freely available to help developers implement the format within their applications.
