Hi,

I'm looking for a vector or hi-res image of a loupe so that I can show it in a map.

So dar I've only seen magnifying glass not an actual loupe.

Does anybody know how I can make on or where to download one ?

Something like this... http://images.macworld.com/images/legacy/2006/10/images/content/aperture1.jpg

Thank You

Something like this? Created this for a project a while back, took about 10mins in Illustrator from a screen shot of the Aperture loupe same as your image.

Cheers

Yes exactly like that...

What else do I need to do to mine to achieve a similar affect? I know the point if sharp but it needs to be... Do I need to change the part that comes out of the frame, like the orientation?

EDIT: It ideally needs to stay at that angle as the part of the country it's pointing to will only fit in this orientation... I notice yours is pointing to the corner rather that straight across.

Rotated it 45˚. Any good?
