Retina Display

Retina display technology is now a new trend that helps create high-resolution screens, clearer images by enhancing pixel density; for example, Macbook Pro 2018 of  Apple which is using this technology.
On the  Mac OS, you can take screenshot  in the part or in the whole using Command+Shift+4 without using the  LighShot software. However, if you are using the Retina screen, you will receive a picture with the double size, and the picture size is very large. You need to use another tool to reduce the size of the photo file, which is really inconvenient. 
 LighShot software has an option that allows you to take screenshot and create an image with the same size as the frame size you choose.
