smarter screenshot capturing
on Retina Macs

How it Works

Say you're working on a blog post and want to take screenshots that look their best on both Retina and non-Retina Macs.

RetinaCapture makes this easy by simultaneously taking a 1x and 2x resolution screenshot and saving both to a single directory. The 1x screenshot is redrawn at the lower resolution, rather than scaled, so everything looks crisp.

A Retina Mac is required to take 2x resolution screenshots.

Do you just want to share a single, non-Retina (1x) resolution image from your Retina Mac with your friends? RetinaCapture makes taking one a snap -- no more oversized screenshots.


RetinaCapture requires macOS 10.12 "Sierra" or newer and is compatible with Intel and Apple Silicon Macs
