    i just got a retina pro moving from my MBA and when i take screenshots with the built in mac app and paste them into my lotus notes emails they are huge. they are at the high resolution expand or something.

    is there a way to have them paste into email at a size that looks like what i see on my screen? I know i can paste to finder, resize, save, etc.. but I'm looking for something automatic as I use screen capture a lot and currently just drag the region and paste.

    Yeah.. I have the same problem and it is because of the 2X resolution of the display. There is a good thread here with some solutions.
