Ok, so I've been working on skin these few days, and today, when I'm trying to export a vtf file to jpg file an error message that says "Error saving image shows up" does anyone knows how to fix this problem?

I've tried different format(.bpm, tag and png)  but it still doesn't work

    You have 2 options:
    1. Upload the file so we can try export it and see how it goes.
    2. You can try this:
    • Put your .vtf file alone in a folder.
    • Open VTFEdit
    • Go to Tools > Convert Folder
    • A window will appear.
    • Now just follow as described in the attached images

    • Now check the output folder, you should find a converted jpg image.
