Tools for creating good looking screenshots?

zenoxzenox CanadaPosts: 62Registered Users @
I personally love screenshots like those used in the Live Wallpaper app: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/live-wallpaper/id531123879?mt=12

Showing what the app looks like on an MacBook, or iMac. I'm wondering if anyone knows of any tools for making images like this? Maybe some photoshop templates, or even an app that I can drag my screenshots into?

    I done this sort of thing using GIMP and Preview. You need to find the images of the Apple devices, crop them using the alpha wand, and crop out the inner image. Then using Gimp add a new image...one of your screenshots perhaps, save it, and layer them as multiple images on a new canvas.

    Tedious, but easy to do if you're knowledgable with photo editing.

    There was also a post on this site which mentioned templates that had Apple devices. It was an app to specifically create screenshots like that. I don't remember the name of the app or the URL.

    The app dev666999 is referring to is Promotee:

    use that in conjunction with GIMP and you'll get anything you ever need (within reason!)

    Edit: check out some samples I put up in this post:
