When U render by POV U can save Your rendered image in different formats
TGA, BMP or PNG in a Directory U can chose.
Try to edit the Povray.ini file from:

"Tools"--> "Edit master POVRAY.INI"

U can add a raw like:

if U want a TGA ... or =S insted of T if U want a BMP or =N if You need a
PNG output image

and also the raw :

tells POVRay where to save the rendered image

at the end of the ini file there are also the output directory and the
library paths where pov try to search for the files "he" needs when it start
to render.
BTW: the ini file is read only when pov start!!!!
