In this video, I demonstrate how to load an image into a Silverlight control that can be examined at greater detail with a magnifying glass effect.

Hey, that's slick. Nicely explained, too.
How complex would it be to create a "bubble" effect so that rather than the magnified image being a flat disk, it looks raised?
I have thought about doing that recently :-)
The trick could be accomplished a couple ways. Due to the internal caching of the image, I have no problem introducing another layer of the image with a skew effect that would render the bubble effect.
I will post a blog on that when I get that working.
Hi Michael: Thanks for a great video.
