Image Description, by
What you can see here are some screenshots of an image viewer I'm writing.
It is called ddsview and is specialized in viewing dds files. Not all
internal dds formats are supported, but nearly all that are in common use
and more than in any other image viewer I've seen (for example, read/write
support for ati2n/3dc or Doom3s normal map format) - that's why I wrote this
app. The viewer can view (and write) several formats besides dds - png, jpg,
dds, xpm, gif, hdr (that's Radiance's High Dynamic Range format if you don't
know it), sun, pnm, ...
The topmost shot is showing off ddsview's cubemap view feature for viewing
dds cubemaps (it's also possible to view the different mipmaps in a dds file
and all the different slices of a 3d texture dds file).
The second row shows (in this order) the rgb channels of a png, it's alpha
channel, and the rgb alphablended with a checkerboard background.
The last shot demonstrates the tile view feature, so you can easily see if
the current image is tilable.

You can get ddsview for free and with source code from
www.amnoid.de/ddsview/. It's still being developed, so feel free to send
suggestions. And tell me if you are good in GLX 1.3, then you could help me
with some issues I'm having with the linux port ;)
