Quick Access
Below are the console commands. Please read the guide before using them.

Animated Screenshot Code:
$J('[name="file_type"]').val("5");
Animated Screenshot Code for Images Longer Than 506 Pixels:
$J('#image_width').val('1000');$J('#image_height').val('1');$J('[name="file_type"]').val("5");
Introduction
The steps below will explain how to upload .GIF (and PNG) files as Steam screenshots.
This is also the fastest and easiest method to uploading custom screenshots.
Step 1


Start by opening this link in a browser:
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/edititem/767/3/
Or, if you want to add your screenshot to a game, open the game's upload artwork page in a browser.
Once you've opened it, right click anywhere on the page and select "Inspect Elements".

Step 2


Go to console tab and paste the following code:
$J('[name="file_type"]').val("5");

If your artwork is taller than 506 pixels, paste this code instead:
$J('#image_width').val('1000');$J('#image_height').val('1');$J('[name="file_type"]').val("5");

Once it's pasted in the console, hit enter.

Step 3


After sending the code, close the console and fill out the upload artwork page like normal. When you're done, go ahead and click "Save and Continue". Your artwork will be uploaded as a screenshot!
