Photoshop CC and Targa files

Monday, February 29, 2016 by retiredmaster | Discussion: WindowBlinds

Just thinking of editing one of my older skins in Photoshop CC and found to my horror that the TGA files aren't handled properly - their alpha channels are borked.

Then I remembered - I previously swapped out the targa file format plugin when I used PS before - and luckily Adobe have made the old plugin available...

But it doesn't seem to load in the PS CC version - there's a message in the start-up log that says that it failed to load.

Any idea how I can edit my TGA files? Help!

I open TGA files in PS CC by opening them via skin studio. It imports them as png files.

Once edited and saved, I use skinstudio to reimport the file. Works for me.
