    I'm trying to make a Spray Logo for CS:S and I'm having the hardest time saving it as a targa file because its not listed as an option. However I do have the plug in for it. I know what the problem is... is operator error... What am I doing wrong? I followed these instructions http://homepage.ntlworld.com/craigweb2k/Spray_Tut/

    It won't let you save as TGA if you have more than one layer. All you need is the alpha channel (the Channel tab).

    Before you go to Save As, make sure you either hide the extra layer or merge it with the other one so you only have one left.

    If you don't want to undo all the layer work you've done before saving, just right-click the titlebar of the image window and Duplicate it, then merge down the layers.

    ...or...

    Save the original version you have with __ number of layers. Then go to 'Layer' > 'Merge Visible' and save as 'Filename2'. That will merge all of your layers into one and give you a second copy.

    or even another option...

    Save it as a jpeg or something, then open it in a viewer such as IRfanView, and re-save it as a TGA. This program will let you save an image with just about any extension.

    or you can save it as a reg jpeg gif or something else and use and it will convert and install the spray exactly where it needs to be...just select the spray in options and you are good to go
