The TGA format was originally defined in 1984 by AT&T EPICenter and later became Truevision following a successful buyout. The format is a raster graphics format for use originally with high-end PC graphics cards intended for use in video editing with the format mainly supporting NTSC and PAL video resolutions.

The format stores images in various levels of color depth starting at 2-bits-per-pixel (bpp) all the way to 32-bit where color would occupy 24-bits with the final 8-bits dedicated to the alpha channel. The format of the file is fairly simple compared to other formats of the time such as BMP and TIFF.

The PNG graphics file format is a commonly used format for storing 2D images which can be highly compressed by the use a palette if the image has a sufficiently low number of colors (256 colors in general). The PNG file is then further compressed using the DEFLATE compression algorithm to ensure small file sizes that are fast to download.

PNG files are seen as the logical successor to the GIF image file format and was devised in the mid-1990's as a superior format to GIF. PNG files are generally used for company logos, icons and other non-photographic image content. Saving a digital photo in the PNG format will create a much larger file than an equivalent JPG image hence the PNG format being unsuitable for most digital photo content.
