How to install NVIDIA Plug-in for Adobe Photoshop ( on windows 7) ,64 bit by corinandrea1976


How to Determine if Your Computer Is 32-Bit or 64-Bit?

1) Right click on Computer and click Properties.Look at  'System Type' it will tell you whether you're 64 or 32.

2)Then,if your pc is a 64 bit ,(running windows 7) download  NVIDIA Plug-in for Adobe Photoshop 32-BIT ,CAUSE 64-BIT do not work,on this system.

3)So download the 32-bit nvidia plug-in from  https://developer.nvidia.com/nvidia-texture-tools-adobe-photoshop   (32-bit),after  you finish downloading it ,click install.

4)When will ask where to install the dds plugins ,you go to   c:/programs/adobe/photoshop/plugin

5)When the installation process is finished ,open your photoshop,and try to open a dds file, i always put them on desktop ,(is much easier to find it :D).so photohop ,go to file ,open,desktop   dressgrey.dds(example name),click open,and if the plugins are installed as i wrote up ,should open it without problems.

If anyone  still have problems (but I hope not!), you can try this solution here:

Just install Paint.Net(find it with google search), open the .dds in Paint.Net, save it as a .jpg/.png, open the newly saved file in photoshop), edit it, open it in Paint.Net, then save it as a .dds.

here the download link  http://www.getpaint.net/

Is much easier ,but i advise the first option as i have both paint.net and photoshop cs6,i love  paint.net ,but ps is full of great options,and tools.

Step by step :

so go to computer-c drive(double click)-programms (x86)-adobe-adobe photoshop(folder)-apps-adobe photoshop folder-Plug-ins folder-plug-ins-file formats-dds.8bi

who want to know more about the dds files ,here you can find some informations:
