Any method to resize my app's window on Mac (macbook) to 1600 x 1200 or 1920 x 1200?

Any method to resize my app's window on Mac (macbook) to 1600 x 1200 or 1920 x 1200?

I would like to make a screen capture for an app (Firefox), but I am using a macbook, so the display is at 1280 x 800.

"I suggest using the built in screenshot shortcuts: press Command-Shift-4, then press Space to toggle for capturing the window rather than the selection, click the desired window.

If you simply must have a screen shot of a website that is identical to the screen resolution, I suggest using the Plainview browser (free).

If you want a single image of an entire website that scrolls down, I recommend LittleSnapper (pay).

But, here's a simple script to change the front most window of any application that's in the front to change it's window to a certain size/location. Remember the Menu bar takes up some space too!

--Edit these values to change the location of the window. Remember the Menu bar takes up some space too!
property windowSize : {200, 200}
property windowOrigin : {100, 100}

tell application ""System Events"" to set FrontMostApp to (name of processes whose frontmost is true) as string
try
tell application FrontMostApp
if (count of windows) > 0 then
tell window 1 to set bounds to {(item 1 of windowOrigin), (item 2 of windowOrigin), (item 1 of windowSize) + (item 1 of windowOrigin), (item 2 of windowSize) + (item 2 of windowOrigin)}
end if
end tell
end try"
