I'm trying to convert a JPEG image to a DDS file format in Adobe Photoshop CC; when I keep saving it keeps showing me a message that says:

image width and height must be multiple of four

The image I'm trying to use is 2000 x 1330, image size is 2.86 MB. What does this mean? And how can I make this work?

I'm using the NVIDIA plug in. What does this mean — I need six images side by side and width should equal height. Must the height be in powers of two?

image width and height must be multiple of four

2000 / 4 = 500
1330 / 4 = 332.5

So, your height is not in multiples of four. You need 1332 or 1328 as height in order to be able to convert it.
