Agreed. I just wanted to make the point that we'd need to allow for
multiple versions of screenshots which I'd not seen mentioned.

For some things yes, for other things no. I like your idea of
an XML/description file containing links to the images and the
versions to which they apply a lot though.
That also gives a nice canonical location:
If going down the XML route then I see no real reason to have
a distinct file per version. Instead have something like:
(Or in some other valid way - my XML is weak.)
That would allow a person to see all screenshots of available versions
in one go, or just those specific to the users distribution
