Convert image files with our easy to use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a DDS (DirectDraw Surface) file and from this, create a new image saved in the DPX (Digital Picture Exchange) format that you can then download and edit/use within image file editors or use for high definition printing applications.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your DDS to DPX.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your DDS file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the DDS to DPX conversion has completed, you can download your DPX file straight away.
We aim to process all DDS to DPX conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds but can be more for larger more complex files so please be patient.
We aim to create the most accurate conversions with our tools. Our tools are under constant development with new features and improvements being added every week.
Yes, of course! We do not store the DDS file you submit to us. The resulting DPX file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.

|Full Name||DirectDraw Surface|
The DDS file format was introduced my Microsoft in 1999 intended to be its standard image format for the DirectX 7 3D graphics Api. The format is used to store textures for use within 3D graphics and game environments and can be compressed or uncompressed.
The compression algorithm used by DDS was the previously proprietary S3 Texture Compression which could reduce the image file size down and was easy for the GPU to decompress in real-time. The format is still used and there are some 3rd party image editors that are compatible with the format.
|Full Name||Digital Picture Exchange|
The DPX format introduced in 1994 is an image format used mainly for visual effects and for storing digital intermediate work. The format is descended form the Kodak Cineon format originally devised for use in digital cameras.
The format is most commonly used to store image color density data and is the chosen format for storing still frames for use in post-production work. The format is still used today with the format receiving its latest update in 2018 and can be opened in some 3rd party image processing software.
