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

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

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
