Assume i take a screenshot via

xvfb-run -s "-screen 0 1920x1080x16" cutycapt --url ... --out ...

then i have learned that cutycapt will not use the X sessions parameters.

How would i generate an output with cutycapt at a higher resolution, so it can be displayed nicer on e.g. 1920x1080?

The manpage shows that

--min-width --min-height

can be used to adjust the output size so the resulting command would be

xvfb-run cutycapt --min-width=1080 --min-height=1920 --url ... --out ...

Note: forcing the X server to a certain resolution is not necessary, as noted in the linked question, cutycapt does its own thing.
