As a software developer who does UI, you’ll sometimes need to see exactly what is shown on your screen. You need to see pixels. You need to see pixels in large.
Mark Russinovich has built a tool called Zoomit.exe with which you can zoom into the screen fast.
It’s got these additional features:
- From Vista on, it does even live zoom.
- You can draw lines, straight lines, rectangles, ellipses.
- You can write text.
- The tool has been built as support for presentations, so it’s got a break function.
Though I use it only for zooming, I like it.
I’m a long-time fan of http://www.digitalmantra.com/fatbits/
It can be configured to show mouse position (which can also be zeroed) and pixel colour.
Thanks, Lee, this sounds interesting.
