Automating Screenshot Cropping and Conversion for iPhone App Store Submission

If you develop applications for the iPhone, one of many tedious aspects of submitting to the app store is making the application screenshots for upload. \ \ You have to:\ \ - Take snapshots on the phone - Grab them with iPhoto\ - Crop the status bar on each image\ - Convert from PNG to JPEG for each image\
