Problem opening dds files with Photoshop CS.

Postby Gridd66 » Sun Mar 25, 2012 9:52 am

hi new to this forum have looked and posted on other forums without any luck so this is my last gasp. I have photoshop CS, version 8 and in the passed have used nvidea plugin-ins in order to open dds files, now i have a new shiny built pc, os 7 64. so i reinstalled ps and the plug ins but it wont le t me open them up, telling it is the wrong type of document.

This is the version of plugin i have installed. Photoshop_Plugins_x64_8.52.0208.1800.

hope this is the right forum to post this.

Are you sure you copied the nvidia plugin into the Plug-Ins sub folder of the Photoshop folder? If no please do so.

Some installers do it, some not. Not sure about the mentioned plugin.

It could be that the dds files can only be opened when using File > Open from the menu in Photoshop.

If dds does not appear as an supported file extention in the File > Open dialog, then Photoshop does not use the dds format plugin. Then the plugins is either not compatible with your Photoshop version or Photoshop does not find the plugin, because it is not correctly installed.

The plugin needs to be placed in the Plug-Ins sub folder of the Photoshop folder...
