This is an image file format that is used on PlayStation game consoles. It supports 4-, 8-, 16-, 24-, and 32-bit color. It is used in game software development and supports standard RGBA with transparency levels. GTA is the most well-known game series that uses TIM image files.
This format is used to store images that have been divided into Y, U, and V color components. In this case, Y corresponds to brightness, and the variables U and V correspond to color information. This format is able to store more accurate color information than the RGB color space. The YUV Color System also allows you to store video files and save a particular sequence of images.
