Cyril Mottier published more than a year ago 2 articles (Creating Professional Looking Screenshots and Doing the Photoshopping) about how to make professional looking screenshots so that your apps are even better when you published them on the Play Store.
These articles are really well written and I recommend that you read them.
They have however one issue — The PSD files given in the articles are a bit outdated now:
- They are using a Galaxy Nexus as a base which is not the same ratio as a Nexus 4
- (1280 * 720 for the GN versus 1280 * 768 for the N4)
- The clock is set to 4:10 (for Jelly Bean 4.1) which was really good a year ago. Now it should be 4:30 (for Jelly Bean MR2 4.3).
So as I was making some nice screenshots tonight for an upcoming app, I’ve updated the PSD so that you can make some up-to-date professional screenshots !
PS: Hmm in fact I also needed the Nexus 7 version. So here are the 7 inches version (based on Nexus 7 2013 device)
Normally I’d release them under the Beerware licence like all my other projects.
But it’s based on Cyril’s work which is available under the Creative Commons BY 3.0 license. So for once it will be available under the Creative Commons BY 3.0 (which is still fairly liberal).
