My MacBook Pro is 2560x1600 native resolution, when I capture a screenshot, why the captured image is 2880x1800? I don't understand.


Retina display 13.3-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit display with IPS technology; 2560-by-1600 native resolution at 227 pixels per inch with support for millions of colors. Supported scaled resolutions: 1680 by 1050, 1440 by 900, 1024 by 640.

    superuser.com/questions/612492/… this might explain why? I guess you could mess with teh settings and take another screenshot and see if the size changes.

  • The "About this mac" section lists the maximum resolution of the display hardware. The "Displays" section within system preferences will show you the active resolution that has been set by the operating system.
