Spiffy up iOS screenshots with Screentaker for Mac

By , Sep 4, 2012

A while back we brought you a look at Preview Maker — a jailbreak app that allows you to doctor up your screenshots with the body of the iPhone.

That app continues to work well, but what if your device isn’t jailbroken? Of course, you can always fire up Photoshop, but there is a much faster alternative, and it’s dedicated to making your iOS screenshots look better.

Screentaker is the solution to that problem. It’s a Mac app that has been available for some time now; perhaps you already use it? At any rate, it continues to be one of the simplest methods for dressing up iOS screenshots, making them look more professional.

It’s best to watch the video in 1080p in full screen mode if possible. That way you can get a clear glimpse into how Screentaker works.

The results are quick, efficient, and frankly, they look awesome. Below is a sample of an iPhone screenshot processed through Screentaker:

What do you think? You can download Screentaker for $4.99 in the Mac App Store.

    For those don’t want to pay OR don’t have OS X, I’ve just found an easy E-Mail way:
    You can add to device frames of Android, iPhone and iPads to your mobile screen capture using email itself. No Photoshop required !
    Capture a screenshot of your mobile phone or tablet screen and send the image as an email attachment to smartphones@mailchimp.com
    Within seconds, Mailchimp will send you a reply containing the same
    screenshot image but with a device frame added to the original image.
    If you would like to add a different device frame to your mobile
    screenshot, simply write the target device name in the subject line of
    your email message (below commands, e.g. iphone) and MailChimp will add the
    required skin to your screen capture.

    iphone (Apple iPhone 4) – wiphone (Apple iPhone 4 White) – ipad (Apple iPad) – wipad (Apple iPad White) – droid (Motorola Droid Bionic) – nexus (Google Nexus 7) – galaxytab (Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1) – galaxynexus (Samsung Galaxy Nexus)
    Hope it helps :-)

        You don’t have to enter command in subject. It can automatically find the device in image’s EXIF information.
