Post Having trouble uploading Steam Screenshots.

Hello, I've recently been playing around in GMod 13 and have been screen-shotting my contraptions, but I'm having a problem uploading them. The first time I encountered this problem I took a screenshot in GMod 13 and attempted to upload in-game. The first time I hit the upload button the progress bar went to about half way and stopped. It then read "1 screenshots could not be uploaded due to errors." I attempted to upload three or four times again and after several failures it finally uploaded.

I encountered the problem again and again. To try and fix the problem I have tried a few things: Exiting the game and then uploading them and setting the view settings to "Friends Only". I have 999mb left to upload all of my screenshots which are normally 200-300kb. I've uploaded about 10-15 screenshots today and am trying to upload several right now.

Is this a problem that I can fix? Thanks for reading.

Hi, I had that problem for a while too, so I completely removed steam, which deleted all my screenshots on my hard drive, and then reinstalled steam. Then I took my "first" screenshot and it uploaded beautifully. Every one now. So my theory is that when you get a ton of screenshots in your steam folder, it gets clogged up and prevents you from uploading any.

Hi Wolf!

I've experienced this problem too at times.

The solution I've found to help it upload *Most* often is to add comments for the image.
Hope this helps you out
