    If you are using photoshop vtf plugin just save it as a vtf (make sure it is in DXT 5 format.)

    You need to create a texture, convert it to .VTF, create a VMT for it, then add it into your level, and before you release your level pack it with PakRat.

    Here's a tutorial for CSS, but it works with TF2 too:
