Paint Shop Pro X2 Photo and DDS

I've tried to install the NVidia DDS PS plugin into PSP X2 Photo, and while it shows up on Save As menu, it will not actually save a dds file, and instead PSP throws a "Plugin cannot read requested format". I've un-installed and re-installed the NVidia DDS plugin several times, with the same end effect.

Any one have any clues? Any other DDS filters/plugins that work with PSP X2 Photo?

thanks,
Brad

I suspect that this plugin only works with Photoshop and is not compatible with PSP.

Thanks Harry, for the followup. That was my fear, and I was hoping vigorously that it was not the case. PSP has a good history, to my knowledge, of PS plugin compatibility so I was rather surprised it didn't work, especially coming from NVidia.

By chance, are you aware of another plugin that may suffice to read/write .DDS format?

thanks,
Brad

Sorry, no. Try to contact Nvdia. Maybe they will update it for PSP compatibility.

Ok, thanks. I did drop a note on the NVidia Developer forum but from lookng around there not a lot of response there so I'm not holding my breath.... :lol:

Thanks again,
Brad

I see their website was "Last Updated: 05 / 04 / 2007", so that's a clue! Time to look elsewhere...
