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.

Np, the VPK file you need is pak01_dir.vpk. Good luck.

Don't try installing the NET Framework bs it doesn't install it just non stop gives you "Setup Error" so someone needs too update this method.

Can someone help me please? I know i'm late but I managed to replace all the photos. They're the right size and in format .jpg but I don't know how to put it to the game. I can convert the files to .vtf but i don't know what to do next. I tried to do the import but when I try it says that all faces and frames must be the same size. Please help.

@SingleAsPringle : You need to use a thing called vpk.exe witch is located somewhere into your L4D2 folder after you download "L4D2 Authoring Tools" (download this on steam, from "Tools" in your Library), install it like a game.
This thing can compile and decompile vpk's, just drag them on it (or on a shortcut to it) and it will pack / unpack them.
You need to recreate the hierarchy of the game files, the best way to learn is to take a concert mod from the Workshop, go into Steam/steamapps/left 4 dead 2/left4dead2/addons/workshop, copy the correct vpk and drag & drop in onto this "vpk.exe"

@Ellie : Thank you very much. I haven't tried it yet but I hope it will work. I'm happy that someone responded even though it's been a year :P

It works with unpacking vpk's but it doesn't pack them back. It just hangs up and doesn't respond when I try to pack it.
