    Short tutorial on how to convert .jpeg to .vtf, with transparency as well if you need it. In addition to Photoshop, you'll need VTF Edit which you can download here.

    1. Open up Photoshop and create a blank 256x256 RGB 8-bit image.
    2. Fill the canvas with R128, G128, B128.
    3. Create a new layer on top, and add or draw whatever you want your spray to be. From this layer, delete anything that you wish to be transparent in your final spray.
    4. CTRL+click this layer in the layers palette to select only what you have drawn onto the layer.
    5. Go to the Channels tab and create an alpha channel from selection.
    6. Go back to the layers tab and flatten your image.
    7. Save the image as a TGA file. Make sure that Alpha Channels is checked, select OK and select "32-bit" if anything pops up.
    8. Open up VTF Edit. Select File -> Import and select your TGA file.
    9. In the box that appears, uncheck "Generate Mipmaps" and leave everything else as is. Note that Alpha Format should read DXT5. Select OK.
    10. To ensure that the TGA alpha map worked, you can go to View -> Mask, which will turn on the alpha map preview.
    11. Save your file. You'll need to place the final .vtf file in two locations:
    \Steam\steamapps\yourusername\team fortress 2\tf\materials\VGUI\logos
    \Steam\steamapps\yourusername\team fortress 2\tf\materials\VGUI\logos\UI\
    Note: You can create these two locations if they do not exist.

    After all that, just follow what Rev said. Hope that helps! ^^
