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. And since the 1x screenshot is redrawn at the lower resolution rather than scaled, everything looks crisp.

A Retina Mac is required to take 2x resolution screenshots. HiDPI mode works too. Do you just want to share a single 1x resolution image with your friends via Twitter? RetinaCapture makes taking one on a Retina Mac a snap.


  • Capture a window, the entire screen or a selected region of the screen
  • Take screenshots at 1x or 2x (Retina) resolutions, or both simultaneously
  • Save captures in the PNG, JPEG or TIFF file formats
  • Toggle between @2x and _2x naming schemes
