How to use DDS Viewer
The fastest way of using DDS Viewer is to associate it with DDS files.
Then, simply double-click or press enter on any DDS file to view it.
Another way is to use Drag&Drop or the good old "File->Open..."
By default, the image will be modulated by it's alpha channel ( if there is one ).
If you want to disable that function, click on Options->Alpha Channel.
Background grid is light by default ( can be changed ), in Options->Grid (Light/Dark).
You can browse through all DDS files in the same folder by the mouse wheel rotation..
By default, the image sizemode is set to Zoom. You can change it in the main menu, with the drop down list.
You can flip a image by clicking on Flip Image in Options->Flip Image.
