Option 1 = Switch to fullscreen Option 2 = Autohide the dock When you try to save this time resize the dialog window so its not so low and continue saving. It should remember the same size when you switch back to your normal screen or dock settings.
Alternative method, even though the first method works & was accepted as the correct answer... this also works for attached file-picker sheets where you cannot reach the red/yellow/green dots. Shift/drag any visible edge of a window will simultaneously resize it from all sides except the side opposite to the drag; then enabling you to drag it to a new ...

For some reason, if I try to put them on the same line like so: /usr/bin/open /Applications/Google\ Chrome.app --new --args --new-window ...
ShiftIt is a free app that does a similar job to some of the others mentioned here: CMD + ALT + CTRL + F gives you full-screen. It also does quarter screen, center, and move to next screen if you have multiple monitors. It requires XQuartz which does rather dwarf its <1Mb download.
