Now that you know the trick, go out and use it in your presentations. Make them more appealing and thrill the audiences. Best wishes for all your presentations.


  1. Hey great idea! I wonder would it be worth layering another circle over the first one with some sort of translucent frosting or gradient, because magnifying glasses are not 100% clear, esp at an angle.

    Great suggestion though and one I had never thought of. Keep up the good work

    Thanks for your comments and a very good suggestion. Adding another white circle over the existing lens and giving it around 80% transparency will give a slight translucent feel to the look. Will definitely take the image even more closer to reality.
