Hello all, this is my first post and really need help. Everytime I make a badge/banner when i go to save it as a .tga it says that 'Because of the limitations of the specified file format (and possibly the save options you have selected) the saved file will be limited to a merged image.' Because of this all the B&B's i make do not show up in the Dow Army Painter. Any ideas on how I could solve this problem would be greatly appreciated.:)

Yep - it's correct that the image should be merged. Read the specification for a b&b.

24-bit TGA with an alpha channel.

I think the mistake you are doing, is creating the alpha channel in layers. If you're using photoshop, this should instead be a layer in the channels tab.
