WOW! Why am I just now discovering this app.

This app really helps my tired late night eyes, color picking and graphics alignment /positioning. It has wheel scrollable zoom, is easily resizable and is far easier to use than the oem app (just pin to taskbar).

Win7 Ulitmate has this already. Very good for folks with degenerative eye disease.

Does it work on /7, did you try it - because the specs don't say.

Yeah, and I run Win7 Ultimate and I must say I like this better than win7 built in app as it gives screen location, crosshairs, rgb values for selected area and resizable window (allows you to kinda see where you are going vs. enlarging entire screen). Only draw back is that it shows a static image rather than realtime enlargement.
