TN2 is part of a group of extensions attached to images created or edited on Atari ST computers, including TN1, TN3 and TNY. All are considered archaic, as Atari computers have been discontinued since the 1990s. TN2 files support small-sized 4-colored images and are also known as Tiny Stuff images.
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).
