Cool Extracting images from game data

So I looked for a "I have no idea what I am doing..." forum to post this in, but I don't see one. So, I will post my question here...

I am trying to extract item images from the game. The ones I need are the transparent .png's of 'Thick Leather' or 'Argentum' for example. I am assuming these are stored on the client-side. I have seen references to these .dds files on threads about inserting images, but cannot find anything about extracting. These threads are also referring to textures, which is not what I need. Are the images I'm seeking stored inside these .dds files? ESOutpost seems to be using pretty legit looking .png images on their site. Those images are what I am after. How can I retrieve them?

I remember a viewer in the addons list, in order to print images ingame.

But as i know, the game is based on dds files.

Just curious, but why do you need the images extracted?

Probably because if you can take it out you can presumably put something different in its place?

I have not come across any way to do manual texture overrides in this game's UI. Though you could replace textures through an addon.

I guess the reason why I was asking is that sometimes people don't realize that they don't need the game's textures in their addon folder in order to use a texture in their addon code.

Which might be rather iffy legally unless you have permission to do so.

You could always do it the old fashion way, and retrieve them from a screenshot. It's probably how most have been taken.
