I have the latest version of Photoshop (v 22.4.1) for my Windows computer, and it won't let me export my files as Targas (TGAs).  I tried the "Save a Copy" option like in some videos, but that didn't have the Targa option either.  Can someone help me with this.  I need this for texturing 3D models in Unreal Engine 4.

Thank you for the advice, but I don't want to flatten everything because I'm making multiple texture maps from one file.  I did manage to solve the problem by changing the file mode to "8 Bits/Channel" instead of "16 Bits/Channel".  Then the Targa option comes up in the "Save a Copy" option.  This way I can export files into TGAs, while keeping all of my layers.

Try flattening it (or better yet a duplicate of it). Then when it's flattened, go to File > Save As and the Targa option should appear.
