Enable Dithering: Here you can enable dithering for either 8bit images only or for all images including 8bit, 16bit and 32bit float. Dithering can improve the look of the images by reducing the apparent effects of banding.

Use Legacy DDS Header Encoding: This option enables the exporting of DDS files with the legacy header encoding (DX9) which have been depreciated due to new standards within DX10 and above. Leaving the option unchecked will export DDS files that are compliant with current standards.
