.bmp - big; .jpeg - ugly picture (its compression looses data). Targa - comprimable, alpha channel, nice picture, easy loading =)

Is there a good targa exporter that''s not photoshop, because I won''t be able to buy that for a few months.

After converting my images to TARGA, I noticed that NeHe's TGA loader doesn't support grayscale images. Any thoughts on how to get around it? (I would just change my picture to color in GIMP but I'll be danged if I know how)

Oops disregard this post.
