You could rotate the magnifying glass according to the position on the screen. so if you are on the top, bottom, left or right you would always have the magnifying glass facing to the outside edge.
Also allow some single finger or single mouse action by using the double click.
The rotation idea apealed to the programmer in me but I suspect might look a bit confusing in use. ( I would probably go for the 'shrink the image, use the leftover space for status' approach).
Re single finger/mouse approach. Definitly if this was anything but what it is (and OK I might do it anyway!).
Thanks for taking the time to feedback.
