  • Register/Buy Now
We will see them in detail.
   

Options->Settings

The "Settings" form contains all the options of Desktop Zoomer.

Settings of the Desktop Zoomer

The "Settings" panel has these sections :
  • General
  • Glass
  • Effects
  • Screenshots
  • Hotkeys

Options->Settings->General

General Settings of the Desktop Zoomer

  • Start on Windows check box :
    By checking this option you start Desktop Zoomer on every windows start up.

  • Show Glass on Desktop Zoomer start
    Every time you launch Desktop Zoomer the lens is switched on.
    Notice that on the unregistered version you have to click on "Try..." button and then the lens start.

  • Show options window on Desktop Zoomer start
    Enabling this option shows the Option form on program start.

  • Show information on glass
    This option prints auxiliary messages on the lens.
    For example while zooming prints the zoom factor.

  • Windows 8 mode
    This mode works only under Windows Vista , Windows 7 & Windows 8.
    This is an alternative method of magnification.
    This method is system - bit dependent.
    In Windows (Vista,7,8) 32 bit you have to use the DesktopZoomer 32 bit version
    In Windows (Vista,7,8) 64 bit you have to use the DesktopZoomer 64 bit version
    By using this method :
    a) The mirroring effect which happened in the under cursor mode at Windows 8 dissapears.
    b) You obtain GPU acceleration and not CPU. (with aero enabled, when this is possible [Windows Vista,7])
    c) It is more efficient on Windows 7 & Windows 8
    d) You lose some features like the brightess effect and some cursor options.

  • Language
    Desktop Zoomer support multiple languages.
    Select your favorite language from here.

  • Toggle Glass button

  • Close options button
    Closes the options window.

  • Close Desktop Zoomer
    Closes the Desktop Zoomer application.

   

Options->Settings->Glass

Glass Settings of the Desktop Zoomer

  • Dimension
    From here you can set the width and the height of your lens.
    Let's see how you can set the increase/decrease step of the lens.
    X1 means that the increase/decrease step of the width and height becomes one unit.
    So By setting "X1" you resize the width for example from 300 to 301 to 302 and so on on every increase click.
    By clicking over "X1" becomes "X10" re clicking becomes "X100" and lastly "X1" again.

  • Zoom factor
    Define the zoom factor of your lens. The step is 0.1
    Minimum zoom factor is 1
    Maximum zoom factor is 99.0

  • Position
    Define the positioning of your lens

    1)Under cursor
    This option sets the glass under the cursor (mouse).
    The minimum distance from border is the distance of pixels where the mouse cursor must be away from the border.
    If the minimum distance is not respected then Desktop Zoomer moves the glass when this it is possible.
    The glass can be moved when it is within the active zone.
    You can enable the full screen mode.
    If you enable the full screen mode you can enable the auxiliary thumbnail image (recommended) in order to help you with the positioning.
    The thumbnail has a ratio with the original image.
    Smaller the thumbnail (bigger the ratio) less CPU is required.
    Available ratios are : 3,4,6,8,10,12.
    A good choice is 6 (The thumbnail is 6 times smaller that the original desktop dimension).
    This mode disables AERO under Windows 7 and Windows Vista (Disables desktop composition).
    Disabling aero causes some special windows to not be able to seen like the widgets on the desktop.
    This option is the most common option since the lens "follows" the cursor mouse within the active zone of the lens.

    2)Fixed position.
    Fixes the lens (left,top) into a point.
    The minimum distance from border is the distance of pixels where the mouse cursor must be away from the border.
    By checking "Do not follow cursor/caret" the lens does not follow the mouse/caret.
    Desktop Zoomer will only "project" the original area into the lenses.
    In this case the position of original "capture" area can be set using the "Active zone" Top-Left values.
    If the option "Never cursor under glass" is checked then the mouse can be moved under the lens.
    In this case aero under Windows 7 and Windows Vista will be disabled.
    If the option "Never cursor under glass" is NOT checked then the window will be in your fixed position unless the mouse goes under the lens.
    If the mouse tries to go under the lens then the lens will move into a neighbour "secure region"( Left, Right, Bottom, Top ).
    If the glass dimension are too big and the lens can not be moved into a secure position then a read alert (warning) will show up.
    Avoid this warning by enlarging your active zone or by decreasing the lens dimension or by changing the fixed position (a close to border fixed position will always handle bigger lens).
    This option leave the aero enabled.
    Using this option you can "see" special windows like the widgets on the desktop.

    3) Follow the mouse securely
    With this option the cursor will always be away from the lens.
    You can define the distance between cursor and lens window.
    Again if the window is too big a warning should appear.
    If you get the warning means that part of the glass will be off active zone. (Could not be positioned all the glass within the active zone)
    In that case or you have to enlarge your active zone or decrease the lens dimension or decrease the distance The aero in this case will be enabled.

    Enabling "Freeze glass position when you are NOT in active zone" stops magnifying what the cursor points when you ar away of the secure zone.
    This option should be checked.
    If it is not checked the lens will try to follow the cursor but will always stay within active zone.

  • Active zone
    The active zone is the rectangular area that the lens can be moved in.
    That means that the active zone must be bigger than the lens dimensions.
    The "Full screen" is the recommended option.
    If you want to define a dedicated active zone just select the "Select range" and then click on the "Change".

    Define a new active zone

    Now using the "Select zone" window you can define the zone (Top,Left,Width,Height).

    Select active zone

    You can move and resize the "Select zone" window for quicker results.
    Changing the Top,Left,Width,Height values you can fine tune your active zone.
    The "Select zone" window helps you to see visually the area that your lens should be moved in.
    Once you done just hit the "Done" button. If you want to abort just close the "Select zone" form.

  • Quality
    Set up the quality of the lens.
    Below are the options that you can select :
    • Nearest
    • Draft
    • Linear
    • Kernel Box
    • Kernel Linear
    • Kernel Spline
    • Kernel Lanczos

    Nearest is the faster one with the lowest quality. You can use it on "full screen" mode or on older computers.
    Draft is the recommended setting since it provide good quality using a bit more of CPU than the "nearest" option.
    Going deeper on the selections you obtain a better quality using more CPU (resources).
    The best quality you can get is by using the "Kernel Lanczos".
    More information about spline can be found : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cubic_spline
    More information about lanczos can be found here : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lanczos_resampling.

  • Border
    Define the border and the border color of the lens.
    The border can be from 0 to 30 pixels.
    Avoid border 0 for your lens.
    The defaults are : Teal color with a border width of 4 pixels.

  • Refresh
    Detect motion every X milliseconds (ms).
    You can set values from 1 ms to 999 ms.
    This setting tells to Desktop Zoomer every how many ms can detect motion .
    A small value means that the lens will be more fluid (the lens will be repositioned faster, more CPU is needed).
    Generally this value uses relatively low CPU usage so a lower value can be set easily. (40-80 ms).
    After the 160 ms you can notice that the lens is less responsive (blocky motion).

    Render every X milliseconds (ms).
    This is the refresh time of the rendered (zoomed) image.
    Smaller ms time require higher CPU usage.
    You can set values from 1 ms to 999 ms
    A good value is something between 40-60 ms.
    If you want to translate this value in fps (frames per second) just do the calculation fps=1000/X_milliseconds .
    So if you set 40 ms you can get 25fps.
    After the 120 ms you can notice that the enlarged mouse pointer will have a slight delay

  • Other

    In this panel you can set up the cursors and the caret.

    • Hide original checkbox : This option hides the original mouse when the lens are on.
      Notice that if you select as magnified cursor "None" or "Copy original cursor" you will have no mouse pointer at all.

    • From the "Show magnified cursor" you can select between these options :

      • None : Do not show the magnified cursor
      • Copy original cursor : Show enlarged the windows cursor (clone the mouse pointer).
        Notice that if it is hidden the original mouse pointer you get an empty enlarged mouse pointer as well.
        This option does not have the "size" attribute.
      • White cursor : Show a white cursor even if the original cursor is hidden.
        This option does not have the "size" attribute.
      • Yellow cursor : Show a yellow cursor even if the original cursor is hidden.
        This option does not have the "size" attribute.
      • Black cursor : Show a black cursor even if the original cursor is hidden.
        This option does not have the "size" attribute.
      • White arrow : Show a sizable white arrow (The size can be set from the size box located below)
      • Yellow arrow : Show a sizable yellow arrow (The size can be set from the size box located below)
      • Black arrow : Show a sizable black arrow (The size can be set from the size box located below)
      • Cross : A sizable simple cross
      • Centerless cross : A sizable cross without center. This allows you to see through the "mouse"
      • Grid : A sizable centerless cross plus a grid. The squares are 10x10 pixels. This option could be useful using it with the "web designer" effect since you can count dimensions.

    • Follow caret on text editing.
      A caret is a flashing line or block in the window client area that indicates the place where text will be inserted.
      Select this option if you do not want that the lens follow the mouse pointer but the caret.

      Below is a detailed step by step usage of the follow caret option :

      a)Load Desktop Zoomer
      b)Load the options (you can use SHIFT + O)
      c)Go to "Settings", "Glass"
      d)Use the Under cursor positioning.
      e)Leave the "Follow caret on text editing" unchecked and close the options form.
      f)Use the hotkey "SHIFT + G" in order to load the lens.
      g)Lanch a simple text editor like notepad. It is important to launch it after the lens is on.
      h)Start writing on notepad.
      i)Toggle from follow mouse to follow caret using the hotkey : "SHIFT + Z".
      With the same combination you can set again to follow mouse.
   

Options->Settings->Effects

Effects of Desktop Zoomer

Using this panel you can add effects.
The effects can be cascaded.
For example flip vertically and grayscale.
Below are the effects that you can use :
  • Grayscale
  • Negative
  • Flip horizontally
  • Flip vertically
  • Brightness/Contrast/Saturation
  • Web designer glass
By using the horizontal and the vertical flip at the same time you can get a 180° rotation.

By enabling the "Web designer glass" effect you get on the lens screen the R,G,B and HEX color values of the pixel pointed by the mouse.
You also get the exact mouse point position (X,Y) in pixels.
For a better use, you can set the magnified cursor at "Centerless cross" or "Grid" from "Options -> Settings -> Glass -> Other"
Another tip is to set the lens Quality to "Nearest".
Remember that the "Grid" has rectangles of 10x10 pixels and it is also centerless so you can see through the located pixel.
Notice that the colors readings of the "web designer" are not affected by the effects.
Web designer reads the original image colors and not the effected ones.
   

Options->Settings->Screenshots

Screen shot panel of Desktop Zoomer

  • Region : Select if you want to "copy the zoomed version" (what you see, with the effects applied, including mouse pointer) or to just "Copy the original (un zoomed) region" without any effects.
    Notice that with the option "Copy the original region" does not print the mouse pointer.

  • Format : Select BMP (Windows bitmap) for a lossless screen capture or JPEG as a lossy (compression discarding some data) format.
    In the JPEG case you can select the desired quality from 0(less) to 100(better) quality.
    A value of 90 is a pretty good choice.

  • Flash : When you take a snapshot (SHIFT+S) the border of the lens flash in order to communicate with you that the snapshot has been taken. A yellow color is always a good choice.
    The default flash duration is 50 ms. The duration can be set from 1 to 999 milliseconds.
    If you do not want the window to flash at all when you take snapshots just use the same flash color as the border color.
    The default border color is the "Teal".

  • Output path : Define where your screenshots will be stored.
    If the path is empty (default) then your pictures will be located at "DesktopZoomer\Output\Screenshots"
    You can change the path using the blue folder button on the right.
    A snapshot will have a time formatted name like this :
    Screenshot_YYYY-MM-DD-hh-mm-ss.jpg
    where YYYY is the year in four digits like 2020
    MM is the month in two digits format
    DD is the date at two digits format
    hh are the hours at two digits format
    mm are the minutes at two digits format
    ss are the seconds at two digits format.

    Below are some valid examples :
    Screenshot_2012-01-28-14-01-43.jpg
    Screenshot_2012-01-28-14-02-26.bmp

   

Options -> Settings -> Hotkeys

You can change or disable the hotkeys by pressing on the dedicated edit buttons on the right.
For example if you want to change the toggle glass shortkey just press the "edit glass" button.
An "Edit hotkey" window form will appear.

Hotkeys panel of Desktop Zoomer

You can select any key combination you want.
You can select between "NONE", "ALT", "CTRL", "SHIFT" and "WIN" as first combination key.
If you want to use single key as hotkey (not recommended) select "NONE" at the first list box.
Notice that by un-checking the "Enable" check box the selected hotkey is disabled. The disabled hotkeys will appear in red color in the hotkeys list.
The "Restore defaults" option seen in the "Options" section restores all the default hotkeys.

   

Options -> Settings -> Profiles

Profiles panel of Desktop Zoomer

The Profiles are a list of "Profile"
A Profile is a list of settings that determine the complete status of Desktop Zoomer.
Each profile has a unique name.
The default profile is named "Current".

At the top you can find out which profile you are currently using.
You can create a new profile from the "Create new" panel.
Just use the name that you want.
For example : "GraySmall"
Now press the "New" button.
A new profile called "GraySmall" will be created.
The new profile is created but not loaded, so it can not be changed (and updated) too.

Now, from the "Select panel" we select the "GraySmall" and press "Load".
You will see that the Using profile at the top will indicate the new used profile ("GraySmall")

Now let's start defining our new profile.
Go to Glass->Dimension and set 100 width 100 height for example
Select "Position under cursor" with "full screen" disabled.
"Zoom factor" 2x
Active zone "full screen"

Now on the "Effects" panel activate the grayscale effect
Once done with all the settings you wanted just turn back at the "Profiles"
and hit the "Update" button in order to update (save) your "GraySmall" profile.

Using the same procedure you can make multiple profiles.
You can change them from the "Select" panel (select and then load using the "Load" button)
or you can change them from the Tray menu "Change profile" "next" or "previous"
or by using the hot keys
the defaults are :
Load next profile : SHIFT + D
Load previous profile : SHIFT + A

Notice that the last used profile takes the place of the "Current" profile.
So when you reload the program with the last used profile "GraySmall" again Desktop Zoomer will indicate "Using profile current" since the "GraySmall" IS the current profile.
Of course at the "Select" panel combo box will find all your saved profiles including the "GraySmall".

You can remove all your created profiles except the "Current" profile since it stores the last status of Desktop Zoomer.

If you want to restore Desktop Zoomer just hit the "Restore defaults" button located at the "General" settings.
This will not affect the Profile list.
So if you want to remove all the profiles you have to do it manually as described above.

Technical stuff

  • Desktop Zoomer is a portable application.
  • Does not read/write into the registry.
  • No general hooks had been used (external dlls) in order to have a more versatile version
  • Desktop Zoomer is lightweight (CPU optimization) since uses sophisticated graphic libraries.
  • Pushes GDI into it's limits
  • Desktop Zoomer has been tested with success on multi screen monitors.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multi-monitor#Single_PC_multi-monitor
  • Desktop Zoomer can be easily translated since it is using po files
  • When the magnifying glass is under the mouse Desktop Zoomer disables "aero" under Windows 7 and Vista in order to avoid the annoying infinite reflection effect. If you want the aero enabled then you have to use the "Fixed position" + "Never cursor under glass" or the "Follow the mouse securely" under Options -> Settings -> Glass -> Position.
