Only with photoshop? Damn, all I need to convert is 2 images and I don't have photoshop. I doubt I need to use it again after that.

Anyone here have photoshop?

cause there are some pvr2bmp tools, the format
of pvrīs should be well known. maybe you try to
contact an author of such a tool for help or making
a bmp or whatever2pvr.

maybe thereīs some information in the dc sdk.

Pvr Viewer - View PVR files (Dreamcast graphics), extract images from PVM archives, export them to BMP/PNG/JPEG files.

Hmm... can't find anything on GIMP PVR. I'm surprised there aren't any easily available pvr converters considering everything else we have for the DC. I guess not to many people are interested in editing images. I'll keep looking.
