    Maybe this is something to do with retina display, my screenshots show double size in xenforo posts:

    Does anyone know why this is happening?

    BTW I notice that screenshots also open double size in photoshop (but not in preview)

    Do you happen to know how to fix this?

    To "fix" that, you can use http://www.retinacapture.com/ or search to find any better methods.

    Preview defaults to "Zoom to fit" (the screen). You can hit ⌘0 to zoom to full size.

    You can't fix this. The sum of pixels is real and wanted as it is. Especially when you use screenshots for print publishing. You need to know the pixel density of your device that made the screenshot and then resize that picture by the ratio. For postproduction the sum of the pixels can't be high enough but for online use it has only an advantage if the original size and density is kept. So it still looks sharp on hd mobile devices. Therefore my suggestion for XF.
