*.dds Opener

The Windows Texture Viewer does it, too :

There's also a free paint program with built-in DDS support, the nice little Paint.NET software.

Highly recommended if you don't want to spent money.

This program looks interesting because it comes with plugins and you also can write plugins on the fly with its codelab extension.

i use DDS Converter 2

http://files.filefront.com/DDS+Converter+2...;/fileinfo.html

this little program will let you view the files before you convert them. PS probably is just as good though too. i have both.

Yes, I have a Adobe Photoshop CS3 with new plugins (thanks for Catbox for tell me :)), but Adobe Photoshop CS3 need a long time to load and I have DDS Converter 2 too.

Unfortunately IrfanView doesn't show the alpha channel.

Thank you for your info, mschoeldgen. I'm always need alpha channel because some of *.dds file must be view with alpha channel.

Get the Gimp with the plugin.
