DDS file format converter tool ?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I need to convert DDS files to JPEG (or any other picture format) on a Mac, and also convert jpeg files back to DDS. Do you have an idea how to do this ?

DDS = Direct Draw Surface is a special picture format with compression from NVidia which permits a direct loading into video memory. There are some windows tools on their official web site :

http://developer.nvidia.com/object/n...ure_tools.html

Apparently, there's nothing for the Mac there. So you guys, pros out there, do you know something about this ? Any suggestion (except using a PC) ? Photoshop (by default) don't know anything about DDS files.

Mac mini 2.53 GHz, 4 GB, NVidia's 9400M.
13" MacBook Pro 2.66 GHz, 8 GB, NVidia's 320M.
OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8

Ok, so here is what I am using to edit Halo Demo. Aorta is a program that will convert some .dds, but others I have no luck with and I have no idea why that is.
