Okay, I laughed. :) But only in commiseration.

For my screenshots, I just set the stack size on my Mac to iPad size (my
app is only for iPad) and took screenshots in LiveCode using the regular
OS X screenshot shortcuts. Then I cropped them to the required size in a
graphics program to remove the shadow and titlebar, which Apple doesn't
want. Then I resaved as 32-bit PNG. Apple has the image requirements
listed in the developer docs.
I was concerned that the Apple police wouldn't accept Mac screenshots
but it went through on the first try. I doubt they can tell where the
shots came from.
