Does your app make a good first impression with the first view of your app in the App Store? If you don't, research shows that people are less likely to install your hard work.
In this tutorial, we'll cover how to generate App Store screenshot images with Rotato.
Here's a quick video:
If you can create it in Rotato, you can use it as an App Store preview image. Here's a few examples
You can make your screenshot directly on the phone by pressing Power + Volume Up, and send it over to your Mac with the Share menu.
Don't have a screenshot? No problem. Simply connect your iPhone to your laptop via USB, and click the Connect button in Rotato. See below for a video showing how to do this.
To see what your App Store screenshot will look like, open the Aspect Ratio Dropdown in the upper right corner of the canvas in Rotato.
Once open, you'll see all the sizes that the Apple App Store supports. We recommend using the 6.5 inch to design your screenshots.
Now rotate the mockup, change the colors, zoom in, add one or more labels until you have a screenshot that looks great.
Since you've selected the App Store preset in the drop down, any snapshot you make will be in exactly the pixel size supported by the App Store.
So go ahead and click Snapshot.
You can now find your image in the lower right corner. Drag it to a folder - or directly to the App Store Connect page where you normally add your screenshots.
If you're in a hurry, here's what you can do
Here's a video:
You don't have to do all the screenshot sizes one by one. Rotato lets you save a ton of time with the Snapshot all iPhone sizes option in the aspect dropdown menu in the upper right corner.
That's it. Rotato will now open the folder with the screenshots, ready to drag directly into the App Store.
