ZoomIt : Zoom Any Image on The Web

Microsoft Live Labs has rolled out a new web based tool named ZoomIt to zoom any image on the web. All you need to do is copy the URL which holds the image and then paste it in the create box and hit the button Create.

When I checked the quality of zoomed image, well, I am sorry to say that the Windows default zooming (in Windows Photo Gallery) served better. However the tool surely proves handy if you wish to zoom any image on the web and not necessarily download it.

The good thing about the online tool is that you can embed the zoom tool (with an online image you wish to show) on your web page. Following is an example of that.

If you are an webmaster and wish to demonstrate a big image which you can’t embed normally use Zoom.it. This way you can embed the picture as a whole without disturbing your website layout.
