What you can do with AreaZoom? First of all you may zoom in your screen. Just drag a selection rectangle over the screen and a magnified portion of it will be displayed in a preview window. Also you may then select a desired area on the preview window by pressing the left mouse button on the preview area and dragging the mouse. The area will be marked with a dashed rectangle.
Use "File" menu or press corresponding buttons to save the selected areas as a bitmap on your hard disk or copy image to the clipboard. By default the resulting image will be saved in a 24-bit bitmap format.
This software improves the well known ZoomIt utility included as a part of Windows from older times. It extends the functionality of ZoomIt by adding easy-to-use controls to choose magnification level and save and copy the captured images.
With AreaZoom you may magnify small text or icons as well. It may be particularly useful for web designers that quickly want to capture a precise measured area on the screen and paste it to their graphics application, or an icon, without extracting it from the file.
