About 4 months ago, we shared Sketch to App Store and you guys seemed to love it (500+ votes). Hopefully this will be even more appealing. Screenshot Builder makes it easy to create gorgeous, custom images for your App Store page and export them in every resolution Apple requires. You don't need Sketch or Photoshop to use it. In fact, we built it so people don't need any design experience at all. Just point and click your way to beautiful App Store images. We built this for two reasons: 1) We had a bunch of people telling us they'd bought Sketch specifically to use the template. This seemed silly and expensive. 2) A lot of organizations have product managers/marketers directing how these should look, but need the designers to actually create and update them. This will hopefully let PMs own the whole process themselves, freeing up designers to do more important (and interesting) things. It's available for you guys first, so please please please please ask questions and send feedback. I'll be here answering questions all day. I’d love to know what you think of the onboarding, user experience, options, etc… Fire away!

@mulligan Great job Brenden. Love it! Really simple to use.
@mulligan Love how you guys addressing friction for folks publishing apps.
My favourite thing about this app is that it lets me actually USE it before asking me to sign up. I uploaded and edited one screenshot, then was asked to signup to continue adding more. At that point I gladly did sign up. Please let's make this the new model for onboarding for all other apps, rather than just making grandiose claims and forcing people to sign up or download something to do anything.
@jblok2 thanks. that means a lot. we care about it too and nice to know we got it right for you :)
I dread the days approaching an app submission. Screenshots always seem to be the last thing to do and it takes FOREVER to make all those sizes and have them look good. God bless you @mulligan for making this.
@kristofertm thank YOU for making our morning with your kind words.
Interesting technical note: We built this all with <canvas> in the browser, so it's literally WYSIWYG — there is no server-side image compositing at all. The "export" step re-renders the canvases in full resolution in the browser and uploads the client-rendered images so we can build and email a single .zip of them together. (As a result of this, editing is totally realtime, and you can use any font on your system that is accessible to the browser, and we minimize server-side load.)
Thanks for making our workflow easier Brenden. With 50+ apps and 2-4 new ones a month, this will literally save us hours that I can now spend on Product Hunt making more comments.
@golocalapps haha. Time well spent. Thanks :)
