How to edit .DDS images?

I notice a lot of images for game are stored as .DDS file format. Is there a reputable and free plug-in for Photoshop that would allow these files to be opened, edited, and saved/exported back to .DDS?

Or, what other options exist? I’ve tried to research in the past, and it seemed like I’d need an nVidia plug-in, which wasn’t free.

You can register and download the extension for Photoshop. It’s for free

Hey moun109668, when using this tool, which setting to select when exporting for AOE2:DE?

Sorry for the late answer… i only edited the background.dds and kept the pre-entered settings, only clicked on “save-button” at the bottm right.
