I've recently tried to open some dds files for modding in video games, to create custom files. 

I have downloaded the Intel Texture Works Plugin and followed the step by step instructions to install. I also have the NVIDIA plugins. 

My problem is I'm unable to open downloaded dds files or open the game dds files. And I'm also unable to save any files as a dds, even though I have the plugins installed.  I'm out of ideas on what to do.

 

Specs: 

Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-8750H CPU 
x64 based PC
Adobe Photoshop CC 2019

DDS is not an image file and Photoshop is the wrong tool for the job
