Screenshots?

I have my game and I want to post screen shots of it ... I took the screen shot from GS and resized it according to apple ... but my pictures look so streched out and bad .. I've put on A LOT of time and work in my game and I don't want my bad looking screen shots to make it look bad... Is there a way around this? I did see this on the market http://gshelper.com/shop/tools-2/easy-screenshot-create-screenshots-fast-for-all-major-app-stores/ BUT before I want to buy it I want to make SURE it doesn't distort images ... Can anyone help me get a solution for this?

I also have no clue how to use photoshop and things like that hahaha

    @http_gamesalad I recommend doing it manually. Just install photoshop trial and follow a tutorial. First you need to change the aspect ratio, you do this by changing the canvas size (cropping the image). For most iPhones it is 16:9. Then resize the image according to apples specifications. Invest a little bit more time in the post production, but it will be worth it:)

    It does stretch the images but provides a quick and easy way to get the required sizes.

    What I usually do is put the app on each major device (iPad, iPhone 6S, iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S) then take screenshots from the device. The pictures will be the appropriate size and you can then take them in Photoshop and touch them up.

    @Braydon_SFX I tried doing that. I paused the scene & I took pictures in different device sizes .. but it kept saving in the iPad resolution. I don't know why it did that even though changed it to iPhone 5, 6 & 6 plus

    @Approw okay. I'll try that. You said I can take the screen shot from iPad & change the aspect ratio?

    That's because you're changing it in creator. You need to put the game on the actual device (ad hoc test)

    If you don't have access to all the devices you need, just go with the crop & resize method. It's pretty straightforward, and you can do that with pretty much any photo editing software. You don't need photoshop for that. I think you can nowdays do it even with MS Paint. (I'm not a windows user, so not sure about the MS paint features...)
