Screenshot Naming for automatic Recognition

New: Test your file names!

We build a little tool that lets you "test" your existing file names and see if they directly work with AppManager. Go over to this site and simply paste your file names.

When you upload screenshots to AppManager we use the file name and the dimensions of the file to automatically detect the locale (language), position, and device category/size.
We recommend the following naming pattern to make sure everything gets recognized on the first try:

{yourname}-{locale-identifier}-{position}.png

Device size

We automatically detect the device size/category for App Store Connect. Please refer to our overview of all possible resolutions.

Position

Simply use a number from 1-10 (App Store Connect) and 1-8 (Google Play) to indicate the position and order of your screenshots.

Before existing screenshots

If you don't want to replace your existing screenshots and simply add a new one before an existing one, simply use the before keyword together with the desired position. lilrobots-iphone65-en-US-before-1.png will result in adding this screenshot before the existing screenshot with the position 1.

Locale

If you are localizing your screenshots for international audiences you can use the official ISO locale codes in the file name. Please refer to our overview of all possible languages.

lilrobots-iphone65-en-US-1.png
lilrobots-iphone65-en-US-2.png
lilrobots-iphone65-de-DE-1.png
lilrobots-iphone65-de-DE-2.png
...

Please note that the iphone65 part in the file name is not required and was only used to generate the screenshots with Photoshop/Sketch.

Tip

To avoid errors with the recognition of your screenshots avoid "random" numbers in the file name as they might get recognized as position indicators and us - or _ to separate locale codes, position, name etc.
