tabaddon Posted August 12, 2010 Share Posted August 12, 2010 Hi, I hope this makes sense. First, I'll say that I've searched but haven't found what I'm looking for. If it's already available, please let me know. I'd like to have something like a magnifying glass to use while editing. When I'm working on small parts of large, high-res images (often over 12" at 300 DPI), zooming in and out and having to scroll around and find the details I need to work on is incredibly tedious and frustrating. It'd be great to be able to just load a magnifying glass that would stay on top and let me manipulate the image/layer below it. As a bonus, its zoom could be custom-set the same way the main image window is, and it could be toggled on and off with keystrokes and/or even reside in the View or Window menu. I know some of you may want to suggest using Windows' Magnifier, but it does not work for this at all. The image becomes too blurry and distorted and it seems to slow down my system. Everything I've tried to do using it has had to be redone. I've also tried a standalone magnifier in the past but it couldn't be made to 'stay on top' so it would leave focus when I tried to do anything. In the meantime, if anyone can recommend a good, clear standalone magnifier that fits my needs, please point me to it and I'll give it a try. Thanks!
