When editing ground textures they have to be saved initially as a png file with a separate alpha layer and then saved as a BC7 format using the Texture Ttool (available in the downloads section).
Saving or exporting with any other programme will not work as there are extra details in the header text of the image used by the game.

Regarding the alpha layer, if you look at the in game ground textured you will see that the alpha layer is used to allow merging of textures so edges are less defined and also to avoid the repeating texture pattern effect when using 4 textures of the same type.
See the in game ground textures for examples most have 4 images for one combined texture.
