OT - Need a progie...

I wrote an awesome targa class today that loads/writes 8, 24, and 32 bit compressed/uncompressed images today only to discover that photoshop 6 does not save compressed .tga images. I may be wrong about this, but I couldnt figure it out Anyone know a good free alternative?

Paint Shop Pro can save compressed 24, 16, and 8 bit images. I’m pretty sure Photoshop can too, but that’s mostly just a guess, since I don’t have it. I use Paint Shop Pro exclusively.

Cool I will check it out, thanks.

gimp saves compressed+uncompressed targa (+ mst other formats) in 8+24+32 bit

Those are both good alternatives.
