Digital magnifying glass

Get a closer look at things on your desktop with this simple tool.

ZoomMagic helps take a closer look at the computer screen with this digital magnifying glass tool. By quickly blowing things up and offering a surprising special feature, this is a great choice for anyone needing to zoom in.

The program's simplistic, onscreen directions welcomed us to start right away. We also appreciated how large all tools and texts were, and how accommodating they were to users with visual impairments. The program blew up anything behind its medium-size box that we ferried around the screen, acting as a digital magnifying glass. Also, the box had an option to stay stationary and everything behind our cursor blew up in the screen. As expected the enlarged images were pixelated. While not impossible to read, users with visual impairments will need the program's fine special feature. The Smooth Zoom feature took the rough, pixelated edges off our images and made text more readable and images more legible. The program does a fantastic job of providing a simple service, planning for its faults and providing solutions to those issues.

ZoomMagic comes with a 15-day trial. The program comes as a compressed file. With an ability to let anyone needing a closer look at the details have a peek, we recommend this program.
