Trim iOS Screenshots

To make your iPad and iPhone screenshots look good on the App Store, Apple recommends you remove the status bar. With many languages and device families supported this can become a tedious and error prone task.

The trims tool on GitHub makes the task of trimming your iOS screenshots easy and can be easily integrated into your workflow. It comes in two flavors: a command line utility and an Automator action. To invoke it from the command line, simply run:

trims <path>

The screenshots, both Retina and non-Retina, will be cropped to the required sizes. The command line even comes with its own man page.

If you prefer a GUI, the accompanying Automator action wraps the utility for convenient integration in your Automator workflows.
