The amount by which to magnify the area behind the layer.Range: 0.01 to 50; Default: 1
Controls whether the layer itself is also magnified. When this is turned on, the layer and the background are both magnified. When this is turned off, the layer bounds remain the same, and only the background viewed through the layer is magnified (much like a magnifying class).Default: off
The sampling mode used when re-sampling the background as it is magnified.
Apply this effect to a shape layer (or to an image with transparent parts that you want to use as a mask), then simply adjust Scale as desired.
- Magnifying Glass: Apply this effect to a circle layer, turn off Magnify Layer, set Sampling to Linear and increase Scale as desired.
- Enlarge Background Object: Use Vector Drawing, Freehand Drawing or a shape layer to draw on top of the object you want to enlarge, sticking as close as possible to the edges of the object to create a mask. Then apply Magnify Background, turn on Magnify Layer, set Sampling to Linear and adjust Scale as desired.
- Pixel Inspector: Apply this effect to a circle or square layer, turn off Magnify Layer, set Sampling to Nearest and increase Scale to 10 or more, as desired.
