What graphic format does EQ2 support?
The Microsoft DirectDraw Surface (.dds) file format is the main graphics format that SOE utilizes for Everquest2. The interface will also officially support the use of TGA, BMP and PNG.

For more information on the DDS format see the DDS FAQ below.

What is DDS and how can I view it?
The Microsoft DirectDraw Surface (.dds) file format is the main graphics format that SOE utilizes for interface graphics files.

Most image editors including Adobe Photoshop will not support this graphics format with a plug-in. There are a few plug-ins available on the net and one of them is avaible from nvidia. You can also find another plug-in that may work better for you in this thread.

tid-bit:
You will notice that once you use the dds format and compress the file(s) with zip the file size becomes very small making it an almost perfect format for interfaces.
