Windows 7: Need a "magnifying glass" to view small image files

Is there a download I can get for Windows 7 which allows me to enlarge an image file, and see the small details which I can not make out with the naked eye?

A simple magnification already installed on Windows 7.

Start > All Programs > Accessories > Ease of Access > Magnifier


There is a free open source image manipulation program called gimp. Download here

Install. Then - Windows > Single-Window Mode

Be sure to activate single window mode, other wise things get very cluttered.

Then File > Open > browse to and pick your image.

There are 2 ways to increase image size.

1st) on the bottom, below the image, there is a adjustment box which you can use to increase or decrease size.

2nd) View > Zoom > many options to choose from.

You can then use the Move Tool to navigate around the image. The move tool is located to the right. It resembles a compass with little arrows on each of its four tips.

Also use an image application that allows you zoom in on a file. I do that here (E-E) when looking at images. .... Thinkpads_User
