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!

  1. 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!

  2. 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 🙂

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. 2 ways to do this a lot easier:
    Use Artwork in your profile to upload pictures.
    Or, just copy the name of the "dummy" screenshot and paste it to the name of the picture you want to upload.
    Then drop the new picture in the folder of the dummies, and choose to overwrite. No wasting time in Paint 😉 Cheers 🙂
