It seems like all my screenshots end up being twice as many pixels as they should even though I run the screen in 1920x1200. If I screenshot this editing box, via command + shift + 4 it says about 600px across, but the screenshot ends up being about 1200px. See:

How can I remedy this?

This is to be expected, as your Retina MBP has an actual pixel resolution of 3840x2400.

You can downscale your screenshots manually, or use an app like RetinaCapture, which takes a full-sized and a downscaled screenshot at the same time.
