Aspose.Total for .NET is a comprehensive suite of .NET components that enables developers to easily export PS to TGA image within any .NET applications. This suite includes Aspose.PDF for .NET and Aspose.Imaging for .NET, which are two powerful components that can be used to export PS to TGA image.
The first step in the process is to use Aspose.PDF for .NET to export PS to JPEG. This component provides a wide range of features that enable developers to easily convert PS to JPEG. It supports a variety of image formats, including JPEG, PNG, TIFF, and BMP. It also provides a range of options for customizing the output image, such as setting the resolution, color depth, and compression level.
The second step is to use Aspose.Imaging for .NET to convert the JPEG to TGA. This component provides a comprehensive set of image processing features that enable developers to easily convert JPEG to TGA. It supports a variety of image formats, including TGA, GIF, and PNG. It also provides a range of options for customizing the output image, such as setting the resolution, color depth, and compression level.
By using Aspose.Total for .NET, developers can easily export PS to TGA image within any .NET applications in two simple steps. This suite provides a comprehensive set of features that enable developers to easily convert PS to JPEG and then convert the JPEG to TGA. It supports a variety of image formats and provides a range of options for customizing the output image.
Convert PS file to TGA via .NET
Install from command line as
nuget install Aspose.Total or install directly from Package Manager Console of Visual Studio.
Alternatively, get the offline MSI installer or DLLs in a ZIP file from downloads .
Convert PS File to TGA in a Single File via C#
Using the API, you can also convert PS file to TGA to a single image file. In order to convert all pages, you can first render your PS document to one TIFF file and after that you can export TIFF file to TGA. You can open the input file using Document class and create Resolution, TiffSettings, & TIFF device objects. You can get a single TIFF image using Process method of TiffDevice class. Finally, you can load TIFF file using Image class and save it to TGA format using Save method.
Convert PS to TGA With Watermark via C#
Using the API, you can also convert PS file to TGA with watermark in your TGA document. In order to add a watermark, you can first render your PS document to JPEG and add a watermark in it. To demonstrate the operation, you can load your converted JPEG image, add transformations using an object of Matrix class and draw a string as the watermark on the image surface using the Graphics class’ DrawString method. After adding the watermark in it, you can save the JPEG as TGA format. Below is a code example that demonstrates how to add a diagonal watermark to your document.
Convert & Rotate PS File to TGA via C#
Using the API, you can also rotate the output TGA image as per your needs. The Image.RotateFlip method can be used to rotate the image by 90/180/270-degrees and flip the image horizontally or vertically. You can specify the type of rotation and flip to apply to the image. In order to rotate and flip the image you can load the converted JPEG image using the factory method exposed by Image class and call the Image.RotateFlip method while specifying the appropriate RotateFlipType .

What is PS File Format?
The PS (PostScript) file format is a page description language developed by Adobe Systems. It is commonly used for printing and is supported by a wide range of printers and imaging devices. PS files contain instructions that describe how elements such as text, images, and graphics should be rendered on a printed page.
PS files are created by applications that generate PostScript output, such as Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, or other graphics software. They are primarily used in professional printing workflows, where high-quality and consistent output is required.
The PS file format is based on a stack-based programming language, where commands and operands are placed on a stack and executed in a sequential manner. This allows for precise control over page layout, typography, color, and other printing parameters.
PS files are typically text-based and can be opened and edited with a text editor. They consist of a series of ASCII characters that represent the PostScript code. The code describes the arrangement and appearance of objects on a page, including text positioning, image placement, and graphical transformations.
While PS files are primarily used for printing, they can also be converted to other formats for digital distribution or further processing. For example, PS files can be converted to PDF (Portable Document Format) files, which are widely supported and can be easily viewed and printed on various devices.
What is TGA File Format?
The Truevision Graphics Adapter (TGA) is a raster graphics file format developed by Truevision Inc. It was initially designed as the native format for TARGA and VISTA boards, which were among the first graphics cards for IBM PC compatibles to offer true color display with 24 bits. TGA supports up to 32 bits per pixel and includes features such as compression, alpha channels, and gamma correction.
The TGA file format is relatively straightforward and consists of several mandatory fields followed by a variable-length image data section. The header of a TGA file must include specific fields such as the number of image ID bytes, the number of color map entries (if applicable), the number of image pixels per byte, the X and Y coordinates of the image origin, the width and height of the image in pixels, the number of bits per pixel, and the image descriptor byte.
The image data section of the TGA file contains the actual image pixels stored as a sequence of bytes. Each pixel is represented by a specified number of bits, which must be a multiple of 8 as per the header. The image descriptor byte provides information about the image orientation and alpha channel. The highest two bits indicate the alpha channel depth, while the remaining six bits determine the image orientation: left-to-right, top-to-bottom; right-to-left, top-to-bottom; left-to-right, bottom-to-top; or right-to-left, bottom-to-top.
If the image includes an alpha channel for transparency, it will be stored in a separate section after the image data. The alpha channel data consists of a sequence of bytes, with each byte representing the opacity of a corresponding pixel.
