Found a bug: L4D2 is saving uncompressed Screenshots
I recently noticed since the big update on 7/2/2013, L4D2 has been saving uncompressed duplicate screenshots in the file format TGA Truevision in the directory Program Files(x86)/steam/steamapps/common/left4dead2/left4dead2/screenshots. Compressed version are being saved to Files(x86)/steam/userdata/7525103/760/remote/550/screenshots. There is no way to stop the duplication or consumption of your hard drive. I've been in contact with tech support because I recently notice I was having triplicate screenshots saved. On 4/14/14, my directory Files(x86)/steam/steamapps/common/left4dead2/left4dead2/screenshots contained both compressed and uncompressed. I am curious to see if anyone else in the community is experiencing either the duplicate or triplicate saving of screen shots.

you report having uncompressed screenshots (the ones with better quality) as a bug?
I'm having a hard way making damn png screenshots
Its not a bug you have the save uncompressed option checked marked in settings. Uncheck it and no more extra pics. Go to steam settings then in-game then uncheck save an uncompressed copy.
This is not a bug.

Now as far as hitting the f12 key sometimes when you hit the f12 key once it will take more then one screen shot. But as far as it saving uncompressed copies do what i said above.

Taking more then one pic when f12 is pressed might be a game problem not a steam problem.
