Steam F12 makes it look compressed and crappy. I just modded the s*** out of Skyrim, 1440p DSR'd to 4.00x and it looks nice. I'd like to show a few friends.

Use a third party app.

Google best in game screen capture program.

Also those shots are tweaked heavily the ones you see of skyrim 4k, they us different lighting and effects.

GeForce Experience has one built in with their In-Game Overlay. Just hit Alt+F1.

Or if you are using ENB, press either PrntScrn or Insert and it will also take a full-quality screenshot (most likely Insert for recent versions of ENB).

Also, you can fix Steam so that it will save uncompressed screenshots within Steam's settings.
Hmm...

I use ENB's and lighting mods if that's what you are referring to.

In the Steam program itself go to Steam>Settings>In-Game and check the box next to where it says "Save an uncompressed copy".
