This feature is built in ML 10.8 with the accessibility feature zoom. Go to system preferences Accessibility, select zoom the last feature is zoom style select picture-in-picture. This will be a rectangle and follows your mouse any where on screen. You can use option command = (to enlarge) or - (to decrees) the text under the magnifying rectangle, if you have a keyboard with num pad you can use option command + or - for the same effect.


It's called a Loupe tool. You'll find it in a lot of different image editing programs. Both Photoshop and Aperture have Loupe tools built in.

  • Aren't those just for viewing the image, though?
