How do you take the screenshot? Do you use the Steam function for that (F12, I think)?

Well, there's your problem: use Steam's screenshot option and you can upload the pictures.

As I said, press F12.

Then reassign the key in Steam's preferences. It's really not that difficult, "dude".

you cant do that in a mac thats the problem with OS X! that key is always there to + the volume, F11 to - the volume, F10 to mute! you got it?

*sigh* Okay, Mac function keys for beginners...

For one, with your settings, pressing "fn" and any function key let's you use it for anything else but the system controls. In your case, fn+F12 equals Steam screenshot.

Secondly, you can reverse that behaviour in the System Preferences, so that you have to press fn+function key for the system controls.

Third and last, you can change the Steam screenshot key in Steam's preferences to anything else but a function key.

You got it now?

As Janichsan said: If you don't press the "fn" (function) key before hitting one of the F# buttons, it will just do whatever the default OS shortcut is (lower/raise brightness, bring up or hide the Dashboard, media controls, etc.). Hitting the F12 key by itself will not be interpreted as a regular F12, but will instead increase the system volume.

If you hold "fn" and hit, say, F12, it will be interpreted the same way a regular F12 would be in Windows (rather than the OS shortcut). In Steam, this will take a screenshot by default.

You can switch this behavior by following Janichsan's instructions (by going to System Preferences) if you don't want to hold the "fn" key every time you take a screenshot. You can also change the Steam screenshot shortcut key through Steam's preferences, as Janichsan mentioned.

None of these options resolve the screenshot issue with steam and mac OS.
