Open .DDS files

i know that the actual guide from let's go games on how to retexture says to use photoshop, but not everyone can spare the change to use the program and a 7 day trial is just simply not enough. So, like some people, I opt in for using the Gimp program and have added the .dds master plugin folder from the gimp repository. However, some files can be opened and some cannot. Of the files that cannot be opened the following errors are given:

Unsupported DXGI format (99)
Unsupported DXGI format (98)

If anyone is experienced with using Gimp for texture edits (which just to say i dont have a problem with editing .dds images from breath of the wild only pokemon) what is the resolution for unsopported DXGI formats?  Doing some searching yields that it's something to do with newer .dds formats. I just don't see any listing for how to fix this.

    Just export them as PNGs with ToolBox.  The dude who made the LGPE guide must of been on drugs or something because he uses all the shitty tools and not the up to date ones

    Not sure, but it's for other games. I tried different kind of DDS plugin, however, this plugin works for the game I used, and later, Generals, Skyrim.

    Not sure if you are using that one.
