How to Upload Long Images for Showcases
By ashsii and 3 collaborators
A simple guide to uploading images (or gifs) on Steam with any height for Artwork or Screenshot showcases.
This is a quick reference, read the guide first to understand how to use these codes.
This guide will guide to you through how to upload long images to the artwork or screenshot showcase. Special thanks for MightyG3 for the discovery of this exploit which completely changed steam profile artworks.

You must be at least Level 10 on Steam to show an artwork/screenshot showcase.

DO NOT upload images with a width of SMALLER than 506px for the center of the showcase.Steam.Design[] will automatically crop your steam background to the correct dimensions.

Don't forget to please carefully read each step to avoid errors and DO THEM IN ORDER.

Open this link in Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.

Select your artwork under Choose File. Your artwork should appear on right side of the page.

Right click anywhere on the page, click inspect/inspect element then go to the 'Console'.

Or use Shortcuts
Chrome shortcut: Ctrl+Shift+J
FireFox Shortcut: Ctrl+Shift+K

Firefox only: after opening the console, MANUALLY type in "allow pasting " without quotation marks and then remove it (you do not need to press enter).
By default Firefox does not allow you to paste codes into the console and this disables that.

Paste ONE of these codes into the console and hit enter. Only one of these codes need to be used, not both.

Enter this line of code into the console to upload as an Artwork:

Enter this line of code into the console to upload as an Screenshot:

Remember to hit enter after pasting it.
The code must be entered every time a different image is selected.

Now simply give it a title and tick that "I certify that I created this artwork" box, then "Save and Continue".

IMPORTANT: On the artwork selector, your artwork will appear to be a thin black line. That is perfectly fine and it means the code worked, when you select the artwork it should look normal after loading.

You can fix this issue by visiting this guide.
The team over at Steam.Design (including Oddball) have created a chrome extension which automates almost a lot of things artwork creating!
Download Chrome Extension[]
It features a button which will automatically upload as a long artwork. Simply select the artwork and give it a name then click the button which appears.


Here are some other relevant helpful guides for uploading artworks:

  • MightyG3 for the amazing exploit <3
  • ash for putting the code together, designing and creating the guide
  • Oddball for working on, improving guide clarity, and shortening code
  • Aevoa for design inspiration and many other guides.
And a special thanks to Tithen-Firion who is no longer with us.

Find more help on on the Steam Artwork Discord[] or at the Steam.Design Discord[].

Please remember: Check you copy and pasted the code correctly and DO STEPS IN ORDER

@★𝘻e𝘤𝘬 ★ what you do mean not work? like not animated or not long?

@Badunky Try using the url instead of logging into with your account. If you already are logged in then are you using the right url? should be the url if you click anything that says "full image"
