UltraMagnifier is a nifty free tool that serves primarily as a screen magnifying tool. You can magnify an area of your screen up to 32x and set it to show HTML color values so it can work nicely as a color picker also.
You can also set a grid to overlay the magnified area which more clearly shows up each individual pixel. This is could be very useful if you wanted to see an icon in more detail and better understand its construction.
If you set the magnification to 1x, the tool serves very well as a screen capture device. Just set the timer to freeze after a few seconds, move the cursor to the area you want captured, wait a moment, and you're done! You can copy and paste screen captures or save them in .PNG or .BMP format.
