How to view & edit .dds files without Photoshop

A lot of people out there depend on Photoshop to edit .dds files. I couldn't use Photoshop.

Instead, I used GIMP. It's free, and you can view, edit and convert .dds files in it.

2 things are needed:

1) Gimp
The download link for the current version is .

2) .dds plugin for Gimp (this is used so Gimp can access .dds files). The current version is .

Instructions:

1) Install Gimp.

2) Unzip the .dds plugin. (dds.exe)

3) Take dds.exe and place it in this folder:
C:\Program Files\GIMP-2.0\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins

4)Do not run dds.exe

5) Restart Gimp

You are done. Now you can open, view, edit, save, convert .dds files without needing Photoshop.

How do you save it? When you save it, you need to save it as BC2/DXT3.

I should have mentioned that.
