.dds is something I've never seen before, and I can only kind of poke at it right now. What is the best, and I mean the simplest, .dds-for-idiots application to use for viewing them and for editing them? Can they be easily converted to and from .tga?

Any tips on when you convert to .dds? There seems to be a lot of options for filtering, etc.

When converting anything for use in SH4, use DXT5 is all the advice I can give. I think you can leave all the other options at their defaults.
