that part should be fairly obvious and since you have given no other details I assume you have the whole model assigned to one material. If that is the case, then you need to go to the outliner and right click the texture that is applied to your current material. From there choose export and save the image.

that should cover it.

I even have a small tutorial for something like this.

Remember to check the wiki first.

Also, if you select object, and do file > export selected, it will create a tga for you.

It'll use what ever format is selected in the drop down menu in the save dialogue.

That happens if you move the selection off of "all formats" to another type of image.

Thought it was BMP by default or something... must've been an early version.
