How to enlarge an existing tga file

Recommended Posts

 

Hi All,

 

I'm trying to modify a .tga file to enlarge an image.  I've tried to resize and change the canvas with the image tab but when I save the file and open it in a game as a mod, it keeps coming up  the same original size,  256 X 256 pixels whenever I paste it to a surface  . I wanted to include a copy of the file in my post for your examination but was unsure of how to do so. I'd appreciate any help as I've spent hours trying to figure out a solution. 

Thanks.

The image you have posted is only 104x104.

After you've saved the enlarged image, you should close and re-open it to ensure it was saved properly at the larger size.

Affirmative.  Including the file in another format for attachment purposes.  I had to save it in a much smaller size but I cannot seem to paste it to a surface in a size larger than 256 x 256 pixels. Somehow in .tga format, the size has been predetermined.

Why? What's stopping you from saving at larger size?

Are you referring to a surface within your game?  Perhaps it's a limitation of the game.

It says I can only attach a file maximum size of .25MB.  Had to reduce to include for illustration.

Here a screenshot of my game.  The tga file is superimposed onto a dds file when the mod is applied.  It seems I can change the pixel values in the image tab and save it. But when I reload the game, the image is no larger.
