    supported files premiere elements 10

    Peter Nauts


      where the heck can I find  a list of all supported extensions(f.e what type of still images / images)  to be imported to premiere elements 10?


      The sites here are a disaster.

          Please open the Premiere Elements 10 Help PDF


          The information on Supported Import Formats can be found on

          page indicator at top PDF = 60

          page shown on actual viewed page = 54


          Supported still-image formats

          Adobe Photoshop® (.psd)

          Adobe Premiere Elements title (.prtl)

          Bitmap (.bmp,.dib,.rle)

          CompuServe GIF® (.gif)

          Fireworks (.wbm)

          JPEG® (.jpg,.jpe,.jpeg,.jfif)

          Macintosh® PICT (.pct,.pic,.pict)

          Pixar Picture (.pxr)

          Portable Network Graphic (.png)

          RAW (.raw,.raf,.crw,.cr2,.mrw,.nef,.orf,.dng)


          My side note:RAW requires the installation of Camera Raw.


          Please review and consider.

            Now I am freaking out,

            then please explain why MY Premiere Elements 10 HAS the supposed probability to import/open  .tga still images .

            See drop down list of the import/open dialog box.

              We are not Adobe. Rather user to user. We do not have insights on how Adobe chooses to represent supported formats.


              All that being said, I have a test for you to carry out to find out if your issue is specific to your "tga" or to all.


              Assuming that you have 10 on Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 64 bit.

              Go to

              Local Disk C

              Program Files


              Adobe Premiere Elements 10




              and in the Common Folder is a group of tga files that Premiere Elements 10 uses.


              Make a copy of the bg_frame.tga file and paste it to your computer desktop.

              Open Premiere Elements 10 and try to import that file from the computer desktop into a Premiere Elements 10 project

              using Premiere Elements 10's Get Media/Files and Folders.

              Does it or does it not import into Premiere Elements 10?


              Looking forward to your results.

                I created a .tga still image file and saved it on my desktop ; Premiere Elements 10 is able to import it. I did  the same (as by your suggestion) and it works fine ( see attachments) .

                Maybe this is a nice subject for the forum to debate about and exchange each others experiences whether or not importing/opening .tgs files with Premiere Elements 10 is possible
                I am using a 32 bits Windows XP Pro by the way.


                But, like I mentioned in the beginning , it seems to be a Dogwaffle issue for saving a still image sequence in ,tga (komma) and not .tga (period)


                Thnks for your response !

                  Thanks for the reply.


                  Am I correct that your issue resolved when you changed your file name to use a period instead of a comma immediately before file extension?

                  Filename - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

                  Comma-separated values - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


                  I have not come across any instances where comma before the file extension (instead of period) has been supported in Premiere Elements for any

                  format be it tga or jpg or mov or other. I work from Windows computers (XP, 7, 8, or 8.1). And, if I take Premiere Elements out of the matter and put a ,tga instead

                  of .tga on the computer desk, it is asking what program to use for opening this ,tga. I have not found such a program, not even Photoshop CS5.1 extended which

                  will easily open .tga (with the period before the file name).
