Videos to show the problem better (anki 2.0) (anki 2.1)

I think that the problem is related to the high screen density.
Basically, i would like to have the same size in the anki card of the piece of screen i capture, like when i do the exact same thing on my desktop pc with a full hd screen. Is it possible?

    Ok, i tried more tests without the addons and the problem was ImageResizer; but there is still a problem with size
    Now it is no longer enormous, but still bigger than the original image. This doesn't happen with a fullhd monitor like my desktop pc.
    I already tried to change css but then every image in every cards i add or review in a normal monitor looks super tiny.

    Yeah the main problem like you wrote there is that if i change the css to suit the high dpi display, then i'll mess them up on every non highdpi display... so i shouldn't expect to get workarounds or fixes ATM?

    There is no automatic solution, but you can manually resize images or selectively style them.

    I'm going to try to style image size to 75% so they are not too big on my retina display and not too small on my fullhd. Thank you for your help!
