First, you need a program to extract the necessary files from the VPK files. I use GCFScape: https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/GCFScape
The download link is in the description.

1. Download and install.
2. Start GCFScape and click Open.
3. Go to your Left 4 Dead 2 VPK directory: .\Steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead 2\left4dead2
4. Open it.

There's 6 posters you can replace, and 2 billboards, and the stage backdrop.

Here are the paths leading to the files that must be changed:
  • .\root\materials\signs\poster_midnight_riders_01.vtf
  • .\root\materials\signs\poster_midnight_riders_album.vtf
  • .\root\materials\signs\poster_midnight_riders_dusty.vtf
  • .\root\materials\signs\poster_midnight_riders_jake.vtf
  • .\root\materials\signs\poster_midnight_riders_ox.vtf
  • .\root\materials\signs\poster_midnight_riders_smitty.vtf
  • .\root\materials\signs\sign_fairground_billboard01.vtf
  • .\root\materials\signs\sign_fairground_billboard02.vtf
  • .\root\materials\signs\sign_fairground_stage1.vtf
Extract these files.

1. Now you need a program to convert *.vtf format. I used VTFEdit: https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/VTFEdit
2. Convert them into a format you can modify like *.tga or *.jpg.
I preferred to export them as *.tga for my concert mods. (File -> Export)
3. Edit them or replace them. I used Adobe Photoshop for this.
4. Convert it back to *.vtf format. Open VTFEdit. (File -> Import)
5. Use the correct settings or the image will not show correctly.
6. Save it.

Then just drop them back into their directories and you're done.
