  • Developer
  • Rating
  • Price

Step 8 –  To Add, Remove Or Edit Screenshots

– To delete creatives, hover over the screenshot you want to remove and click the trashcan.
– You can also rotate images by hovering over an image and clicking the rotate button.
– To move creatives, click and drag the image to the place you want to move it.
