Do you want to know how to upload custom screenshots to your Steam library? This tutorial will show you a verified workaround to quickly get your files online. This 100% working method was last tried on 4/8/2017, and uses a simple trick of “dummy screenshots” to trick Steam.

After wanting to upload some custom images to my Steam community groups I became frustrated that I couldn’t upload the pictures that I wanted, so I scoured the internet looking for a working fix. I tried a few methods and tutorials which involved changing filenames and even editing files directly with a text editor. None of them worked! I realized that I could take “dummy” screenshots with Steam and then just overwrite the images with the image that I actually wanted. This method is stupid simple, to the point where it almost makes me angry. But hey, we love our screenshots….REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

UPDATE: Steam uses the "dummy" screenshots to generate thumbnail pictures. Inside of the folder where the screenshots are kept you will find a folder called "thumbnails". Before you upload your overwritten pictures to Steam, delete all of the pictures from the thumbnail folder. When you upload the new screenshots to Steam it will automatically generate a new set of thumbnail pictures from the custom ones. This way your preview picture links and your screenshots will match!
thanks, this worked.
uh how do you open screenshot uploader what you said does not work anymore i think
the ui has changed so you no longer access the shot uploader from your library, but otherwise this still works fine.
After renaming my screens Steam is refusing to upload them. Thanks for the vid, will try it out.
Still Works Thank You So Much. 5/23/2020
Ахахаха, просто ез. Спасибо!
i found another trick. all you have to do is rename the "custom screenshot" to the " dummy image" name. example (20200422190330_1) is the name of my file
omg why is it so stupid like this…they should just add a upload button… so we don't have to do silly runabouts like this… but thanks…this really helped me out… good video keep it up 🙂
That was incredibly and surprisingly helpful
How do you open the Screenshot Uploader? When I close my game it doesn't automatically open up…
How do you do this on a Mac? Preview tells me it can't edit the dummy screenshot and instead creates a duplicate with the custom screenshot I copied over. The actual screenshot is of a game run that took nearly two hours to accomplish, and I'm not doing that all again so soon to retake it properly!
thank you! this still works. I was using the Windows screenshotting and i didnt know how to put my windows screenshots in my steam folders. Thanks <3
you are the best man.still works in 2020 <3
Great trick ! Works 100%
pro tip: just rename your screenshot same as dummy one and than delete it
dont work xD
Thanks works perfectly, But also edit thumbnails to avoid confusion
Thank you, very easy & simple! I've always had love for Paint! 💯
You do not need to copy/paste your images over the old ones in paint. You can simply just make your images .JPG and name them the same as your screenshots and replace them.
I tried last today (03/02/2020) with a differently(?) shaped image, still works!
