How to take screenshots for 4.7" and 5.5" ios devices?

Hi all,

I usually create screenshots of my AIR apps using a combination of actual screenshots on devices I own, and screenshots of the standalone player by testing the AIR app on my development machine.

However, I don't own any of the new 4.7" or 5.5" iOS devices, and the resolutions for those are larger than my screen, so I can't take a screenshot that way.  The screens are 750x1334 and 1242 x 2208 respectively.

My app is portrait only.

The standalone flash player automatically resizes down to fit within the screen when it launches. If it didn't, I'd be able to move it around, take screenshots, and stitch the images together.

Does anyone have any tips? Maybe a way to ensure the flash player window doesn't resize to fit within the bounds of my screen?

Cheers,

Peter

I figured it out

When running the app locally, need to set <fullScreen>false</fullScreen> to stop the flash player sizing down.

Then I stacked my monitors vertically instaed of side-by-side (not physically, just in display settings) to take screenshots.

Hope it helps someone else!
