    You have to resize the screenshot first. Remember your rMBP has a very huge screen dimension compared to most computer screens.

    Yeah, I love Retina MacBook, but resizing screenshots all the time is a drag. As a project manager I do this many times daily so I figured there must be a better way. So I made app that can resize retina screenshots in one click. It can also capture screenshots in two resolutions at once or batch resize many screenshots.

    It's pretty basic, but took a while to develop so I'm offering it for .99c.

    Check it out at http://resizethisapp.com or Mac Store https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/resize-this/id614530344?ls=1&mt=12

    You can do this in Preview as previous commentators already said, but this is just a faster way, I think.

    As above, resize with Preview or the like. Your computer isn't doing anything wrong, so there's no "fix."
