    Non-square screenshots for N9 apps

    Hi,

    when browsing the Nokia Store from a MeeGo device, I see that apps have non-square screenshots. Anyway, when I try to upload screenshots for a new MeeGo app on Nokia Publish, I'm only allowed to upload square images.

    If anyone knows that, I'd be glad to know how to achieve that, so being able to upload non-squared screenshots. I've searched in Nokia Publish docs and Nokia Library, but was unable to find references to this matter.

    Thanks,
    Pit

    It's not true that you cannot upload non-squared images for MeeGo content. Actually before submission you will be required to provide at least one full screen image for MeeGo content. First you have to create your new content and then can modify metadata fields
    - Primary full-size screen shot 854x480
    - Secondary full-size screen shot 854x480
    - Tertiary full-size screen shot 854x480

    those fields appear in last section "Spotlight & Promotion (optional)"

    Hi pippo2010,

    thank you for your reply. I'm actually trying to upload a 480x854 image as primary full-size screenshot, but I keep getting the "Alert: Image must be square." error.

    Re: Non-square screenshots for N9 apps

    when browsing the Nokia Store from a MeeGo device, I see that apps have non-square screenshots.
    I guess those images are edited by publisher (by adding white space on both side to make it square) of those applications before uploading it. I saw few app with square screenshots.

    For example,
    http://store.ovi.com/content/183959
    http://store.ovi.com/content/185570
    http://store.ovi.com/content/198473

    MeeGo content has extra fields for non-square screenshots

    Re: Non-square screenshots for N9 apps

    Hi,

    @savaj: I thing there's some way to add non-square images too, as on a MeeGo device they appear as normal screenshots taken on a device/simulator

    @pippo: for some reasons I don't see those fields, but only the standard screenshot fields in the "Images" section

    Can someone from Nokia help me?

    Thanks,
    Alessandro

    did you add files? if yes did you specify that it's a MeeGo content? if yes and still no sign of those fields than probably really someone from Nokia needs to have a look at it

    Hi Alessandro,

    Can you give me your content item name or content ID so I can check to see if this field is missing? As Pippo said, the spotlight screenshot fields should be accessible. Note that your application will only appear with a square icon unless it has been picked for spotlight featuring.

    Re: Non-square screenshots for N9 apps

    Hi,

    @pippo: no, I still haven't added files, but the content item is of type "MeeGo/Maemo", isn't this enough?

    @Andrew: the content ID is 218188. As said above, I still haven't added content files, don't know if this is related to the missing spotlight screenshots. As a further question: within the Ovi Store client on my MeeGo device I see all apps with non-square screenshots, while I see squared images only when browsing the Store via Web browser. Is there something I'm missing?

    Thanks,
    Alessandro

    Hi Alessandro,


    You need to add file and mark it as MeeGo type otherwise system seems to be not adding those fields

    Update: just checked one of my Maemo contents and it doesn't have those fields. So you need to have MeeGo-file before they appear

    Re: Non-square screenshots for N9 apps

    Ciao,

    I am having the same issue.
    So do I need to upload the .deb file before uploading the non squared screenshots?
    I did select MeeGo content for publishing

    Ciao Alessandro,

    yes, you have to upload the .deb file, and then you find the extra screenshot fields in the Spotlight section.
