Try Jing, they have a free version that I have used for some time and find it's really good. They have both a Mac and a PC version:

How about Adobe Captivate 5.5? They call it a zoom feature.

Oh wait. I think that I misread Bruce's post. I'd actually like to capture a shot of the entire screen and then "magnify" one portion of it, like a call-out. I've seen some screen capture tools that can do this, and Photoshop may, but I sure cannot remember how to do it right now! Off to go learn it...

Great! Thanks for your replies. I'd actually like to find one with the magnifying glass and forgot to mention this in my initial post. I am pleased that Gadwin PrintScreen has this feature. I'll check out the others, too.

The best screen capture software I've used is Gadwin PrintScreen. You can set it to capture the
whole screen, the active window, or an area you specify by drawing a window (with the aid of a "magnifying glass"). It captures to the windows clipboard, or you can save the file as a jpg, png, etc. I usually paste from the clipboard into a graphics editor for fine tuning (Gimp, PaintShop Pro, or Photoshop, depending).

It's freeware!

They also make a "Pro" version, which I've never used. It adds image editing and annotation for $25, with heavy discounts for multiple licenses.
