Just remember the 'at size' extension doesn't seem to work with all variations of the 'import snapshot' command.

WORKS:
import snapshot from image "dummy" at size 100,100
import snapshot from this card at size 100,100

DOESN'T WORK:
import snapshot from rectangle 0,0,300,300 at size 100,100
import snapshot from rectangle (the rect of image "dummy") at size 100,100
