Converting NMP to DDS

The NMP image format is associated with NeoPaint, a raster graphics processor developed by NeoSoft. NMP files have similar functions and features with NPM files, both representing "mask images", i.e. black-and-white digital copies of an original image, used for processing purposes. NMP files are considered rare and are probably difficult to open using regular image viewers.

DDS (DirectDraw Surface) is an image file format that usually contains texture data, cubic environment maps or other type of data compressed using the S3TC (S3 Texture Compression) algorithm. The DDS format was first associated with Microsoft's DirectX 7.0 and later on with DirectDraw, a tool for accelerating the rendering of graphics in various applications. DDS is a container file and can be decompressed using a graphics processing unit (GPU).
