Hi, I made an account specifically to request this as it's a very important feature to me, and currently the only thing tying me to Adobe.

I work with 3d models and textures a lot. As such, I spend a lot of time creating and editing files in the .dds file format. Too much time to go out and externally convert the files each time I want to make a change. Photoshop doesn't have native support for this file format either but there are a couple of plugins that allow the usage of it. Namely the one from intel and two from nvidia. I know affinity photo does have photoshop plugin support but everything that I've seen points to Affinity Photo not supporting these specific plugins so I was wondering. Would it be at all possible for .dds support to be added at some point, and if not natively. Would it be possible to get any of these plugins to work. Ultimately I like the look of Affinity photo but I just cant use it without this file format being available unfortunately.

Ah, I see this has already been requested. A couple of times it seems too. Do you know if there has been any official statement regarding it? I haven't seen anything but maybe I missed it.

Because as of right now, lack of DDS support is really all that's stopping me from buying Affinity Photo.

Yeah, unfortunately. Most games at this point are using .dds. Which is a perfectly fine file format but Affinity seems to have no desire to support it. Which means I'm stuck with adobe, and I imagine so are you I'm afraid.

Also need dds support for games modding. Come on, Affinity!

will photoshop plugin work in Affinity ?

You can’t use file format plugins in Affinity Photo. It only supports ‘effects’ plugins.

Serif usually does not respond to requests for functions.
