DPS 2015 splash screen template

Every Adobe Digital Publishing Solution app for iOS must contain 6 splash screens in the following sizes: 1536 x 2048, 2048 x 1536, 640 x 960, 640 x 1136, 1242 x 2208, and 2208 x 1242  pixels. These splash screens must be saved in the PNG format. The splash screen appears on the screen momentarily while the app loads.

I’ve created an InDesign template to make creating these various sizes of the splash screens quick and easy. You can download the template here.

The template contains 6 pages in each of the pixel dimensions listed above. Create your desired artwork on the pages, then choose File > Export and export the pages in PNG format. Fill in the Export PNG dialog box as shown below, and PNGs with the exact dimensions required will be output.

Thanks Keith.
I also loved your article in the Indesign Secrets Magazine, the one which compared the different digital publishing solutions.

I would love to view/use the splash screen templates but am not a creative cloud user yet so can't open the .indt file. Could you save/export as an .idml file for non-creative cloud users?
On another note, I've been to a lot of the InDesign users group meetings in the past and see another is coming up at the new St. Paul location. Will most of the content be directed to the creative cloud user or will information be relevant to all InDesign users? It's a bit of a jaunt for me to attend so wondering if there will still be useful information for the non-creative cloud users.
Always enjoyed the sessions in the past!! The information you share is invaluable.
