I believe I got it from here, but I'm not absolutely sure.  It's an old program and it does not seem to install.  It's just a stand alone program that should run from anywhere.  I had to google it to re-discover it:

I use the NVidia Photoshop plugin vrs 8.55, and that works for me in Photoshop cs5 and the cs6. I recommend that you better install the Photoshop cs6

The DXT program is pretty easy and will use PS for editing.  I have CS2 and can still use that for editing and then bringing back to the DXT tool for saving as a .dds file.

Actually my cs2 is buggy and wondering if Gimp would be better and easier for MVP portraits.  I'll have to check it out.  Thanks for mentioning.

what im doing for the time being use, until i find if there is a right setting for us using cc, is do my work in cc, save it as a psd, then go over to paint.net finish and save the final work there. its not the best solution, but it does work. i tried imp and its just to wok-word for me.
