ICB file extension - Truevision Targa format
What is icb file? How to open icb files?
File type specification:
icb file icon:
The ICB file extension is also used for a special version of Truevision Targa format.
This is a format for storing bitmaps that was developed in conjunction with a number of video capture and graphics adapter boards for the PC and Macintosh. The format has thus become popular in the world of still-video editing.
The format was revised in 1989 to add support for new capabilities (thus there are "original" and "new" TGA formats). Fortunately, the "new" format is a superset of the "original", and many applications, even those designed around the "original" format, can read both types of files.
TGA files can contain monochrome images, color images with a palette, and 16-bit, 24-bit and 32-bit TrueColor images. 16-bit images, are usually the most commonly encountered.
TGA files can be uncompressed, or compressed using a Run-length compression scheme.
The "new" TARGA format also can store additional information, including information about when/how the file was created, application specific data, and a thumbnail version of the main image known as a "Postage-stamp image".
Same extension was also used for another bitmap format called Image Capture Board format.
