Create vector 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 vector-based SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) file that you can then download and edit/use within vector file editors or use for high definition printing applications. If you have multiple TGA files to convert then our tool can also batch convert TGA files too. Currently our tool supports up to 25 conversions at a time.
Options are available to specify/remove a background color if the source TGA image does not contain a transparent background. Our tool can attempt to determine the background color automatically or you can manually specify the background color to remove.
Here are 3 simple steps to create an SVG file from a TGA file.
Click the "Upload a File" button and select a TGA to upload. The maximum file size is 100MB.
Set the dimensions and other options and click the "Convert to SVG" button to convert your TGA to SVG.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your TGA file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the TGA to SVG conversion has completed, you can download your SVG file straight away.
We aim to process all TGA to SVG 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 and improvements being added every week.
Yes, of course! We do not store the TGA file you submit to us. The resulting SVG file, once created is deleted 15 minutes after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our TGA to SVG tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.
Yes. Although you can use an Ad Blocker, if you like our TGA conversion tool please consider white-listing our site. When an Ad Blocker is enabled there are some conversion limits on some of our tools and processing/conversion times will be longer.
Yes! Our TGA tool supports full batch conversions. You can upload up to 25 TGA files at a time. Our tool will convert them all as quickly as possible. Once completed, you can either download the SVG files individually or download them all in a single ZIP file.
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.
Introduced by the W3C organisation in 2001 the SVG file format grew to become the standard web file format for vector based 2D images and is supported by the majority of modern web browsers. SVG files are XML based text files containing 2D vector elements such as paths, simple shapes, colors and more.
The SVG format itself whilst primarily a vector format can include raster images as well as text. Due to its vector based format SVG files lend themselves very well to website company logos and icons. A compressed format of SVG also exists which uses the extension SVGZ and employs the GZIP compression algorithm.
