Allows the GIMP to read and write Valve Texture Format files on Windows. Download the latest release and source code at

A relatively simple save options screen is used; to access VTF's more esoteric features make your textures with VTFEdit.

There are two GIMP-specific features. You can:

  • Specify a layer to use as the VTF's alpha channel. This bypasses most problems with GIMP's readiness to destroy the RGB data of fully-transparent pixels.
  • Export each layer group to a different VTF file. Store all your textures in one XCF!

This program uses VTFLib, by Nem and Wunderboy.
