How to Install Sprays

A Tutorial for Counter-Strike: Source

This is a brief tutorial on how to install and select any picture of your choice as a spray for Valve's Counter-Strike: Source. 1. Download/Save picture: Whether it is a picture you liked on the Internet, or one of our fantastic GB sprays, you can use any image as a spray as long as it follows this simple rules:
a. 512x512 pixels(not an exact requirement, but a mere suggestion for best image quality)
b. .JPEG, .tga, .bmp, .gif or .vtf
2. Place the picture file in your cstrike folder located at: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\counter-strike source\cstrike\materials\vgui\logos or C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\counter-strike source\custom\\[custom\_name]\materials\vgui\logos
_Note: If it's a .tga/.jpg/.bmp/.gif save it in your CSTRIKE folder, also put a copy of any .vtf there._ 3. Start CS:S and click on options. 4. Click on Import Spray and then on the cstrike folder.
You will see the name of the picture file; select it, click open and then click OK. 5. Connect to your favorite server. 6. Press T (default key) for spray and notice the picture. 7. Have fun! P.S: If you change the spray while playing, you will have to reconnect to the server you're in, in order to see the change.
