Oh I have only used NVidia's DDS exporter, I have no idea how other ones work.

That's really weird, whenever I try saving that image as a .dds Photoshop crashes.

RE: Outdoor Environments Tutorial

I would advise to use Paint.NET instead of any plugins... works fine for me!

I tried to get a trial of photoshop, but they don't seem to be offering them at the moment.

Any information would be most appreciated, and if I need to provide more info from my end, please let me know.

Thanks.

I would also like to know this. I can open it, Make it 8192x1024, then I Save As, .dds, I choose DXT1 and generate minimaps, but then it says "DDS: Cannot compress images whose dimensions are not multiples of 4.
Saved image will not be compressed."

It also says "DDS: It appears your image may be a volume map,
but not all layers are the same size, thus a volume
map cannot be written."

I think you have to make sure every layer is the same size?

They are. It still gives me both those errors.
