Ok, this isn't quite as it seems. Gimp does claim it is 24 bit. I
assumed then that because the header shows 32 bit, it must have an alpha
channel it isn't counting. But no alpha channel. Can anyone tell me why
the header produced in a 24 bit tga via gimp would claim 32 bit? This
breaks one application that checks file size and measures bytes based on
header claims.
