Magnifying Glass Pro is one of a few screen magnifiers in the area of freeware and shareware that continues to improve by updates. Magnifying Glass Pro not only has nice features for the visually impaired like full screen magnification and caret tracking, but also contains features for those in the business holding a presentation and for graphic designers.
Most freeware and shareware utilities are very sluggish while moving the magnification, but this is not the case here. Magnifying Glass Pro differs from similar utilities with the inclusion of a unique set of features, including:
- Modification of an onscreen image in real time (e.g., adjust contrast, add special effects, smoothing, and so on).
- Adjust the screen position of the magnifying Glass (e.g., a fixed position, under the cursor, angular, and so on).
- Save multiple set of viewing preferences as individual Profiles, then switch between those Profiles instantly (e.g., you can have one Profile for viewing
text and another for working with graphic images).
- Show/hide the Magnifying Glass simply by shaking the mouse cursor from side to side. This is much easier than using the keyboard shortcut when your hand
is already on the mouse.
- Command Mode, which enables you to quickly change/apply Magnifying Glass options (e.g., Glass size and position, transparency, contrast, effects, and
- The Auto-switcher, which enables you to associate individual applications, windows, and screen elements with specific user-defined Profiles (group of
Glass settings). As the "target" changes (e.g., you switch applications) the Auto-switcher applies the appropriate Glass settings automatically, based
on the defined Profile association, with no interruption to your productivity.
- No restrictions on how you can use Magnifying Glass Pro. You control the size and position of the Glass -- it can occupy the entire screen, or a smaller, user-defined area. It can even extend beyond the edges of your screen to move to a second monitor. You can quickly and easily apply a myriad of effects to enhance your viewing experience and solve the sophisticated needs of any text- or graphics-based project.
