I want to write someone in Belgium a letter, but it doesn't work. Why?

If you answer that question, I'll answer yours. :P
But seriously, you need to give at least some information before anyone can make a decent guess.
How far do you get, where does it stop working, what error messages do you get, do you see nothing at all or something incorrect, does your computer blow up in your face, what happens?
Paint is a pretty limited program though; it only supports BMP, GIF, JPG (maybe PNG or something), so you'll still need at least one other program to convert to the proper file type.
(See the aforementioned tutorial for more on that.)

I missed this tutorial section earlier... glad I found it, as the numbered parts and colour-coding are just what I was looking for.
Nice work!

I now have photoshop and i want to do the part where you open the file into photoshop. I get the message
"Cannot Open [Blardebla] Because it is the wrong type of file". I think i have the DDS plugin but trying the method on paint first could of been the problem. Has anyone got any ideas on why it wont work? Ive followed all the other steps exactly

Also I have elements 4.0 as my photoshop version

You both need this plugin for photoshop to see DDS files. Your also have to be up to date on your Direct X I think.

Good luck.

When I downloaded it, I had to install it. Like I said, you may need to update your DirectX.

All I can tell you is that I had a problem at first trying to get it to work, and I thought I had the newest version too, but I went to the MS site and downloaded it, and that did the trick, assuming I'm rembmering correctly. I'm getting older and my memory is fading :P Won't hurt for you to give it a shot though will it? You may even go directly to the MS download pages and get it there instead of doing a windows update.
