Conversion of dds files to png file format

Textures saved in DDS format (DirectDraw surface) can be exported to any other common bitmap format, including PNG. Such dds to png conversion can be usually done with a dedicated conversion utility (for example DDS Converter), but may also be done with some graphics editors like Photoshop with a proper plugin installed.
