✔ A magnifying glass for your screen.

Loupe is a flexible, unintrusive tool which provides fast, accurate inspection of anything you see on your displays. It comes fully-loaded with options:

• Change loupe size and zoom level
• Fully compatible with multiple displays

• Circle or Square -shaped Loupe
• Customizable appearance theme

• Zoom the area under the mouse pointer or the area under the loupe
• Follow the mouse or remain stationary on screen like a window

• HotKey activation
• Menubar item with tear-off menu for fast access

A great companion for photographers, graphic artists, and anyone working with or using images to the degree that pixel-level detail matters, Loupe allows you to closely inspect small areas on your screen.

For the rest of us, just needing to get a closer look at alignment, color, or detail, Loupe is an excellent addition to any toolkit.

Customer Reviews


This app is worthless. Maximum size of loupe and zoom are extremely small. Whole point of a zoom tool is to enlarge an area. Secondarily, most work in enlarging an area is done so as to be able to then manipulate that area via software tools more accurately than if you had not zoomed. Any attempt I have made at doing just this has resulted in either a. the loupe disappearing, or b, the loupe software not allowing the use of the tool successfully in the other program. I suppose if what you want is to see a pixel 6 times larger but you do not want to do anything with that pixel and you only want an area of the screen zoomed that is approx the size of a coke can bottom, than this tool is for you.


I chose this one over the others because the loupe can remain stationary on the screen like any other window (top level). This means I can put it in the corner and go to work. It works as advertised and the menu bar options are very easy to access and change. Overall, I'm really satisfied with this little, I highly recommend it if you're looking for a really good loupe.
