is a simple-to-use software which enables you to easily and quickly share snapshots and video recordings with other users.
Upon initialization, you are required to create an account (don’t worry, you don’t have to access your email account in order to confirm it).
The interface of the application is clean, elegant and intuitive. So, after you define the capturing area (fixed area or selected window), you can choose between taking a snapshot (PNG) and recording a video (SWF).
All you have to do is specify an output file name and save the respective image or video on your computer, or set Jing to automatically upload it on Screencast.com. Its file path or web address is immediately stored in the clipboard.
In addition, you can draw frames or arrows, write text and create highlights on a snapshot, in order to point something out to a friend, as well as view a history of snapshots and recordings (with thumbnails).
In the “Preferences” area you can manage your email account, set a capture key for pictures and videos, configure proxy settings, select an audio input device, customize buttons, enable Jing to automatically run at system startup, hide the Jing sun, and more.
The software takes up a high amount of system resources, can guide you to a comprehensive guide with snapshots online and shows you an interactive video tutorial when you first initialize it. No errors have popped up during our tests and Jing did not freeze or crash.
The quality of the images, audio and videos is excellent, and the tool has a very good response time. We highly recommend Jing to all users who are looking to speed up their online-sharing process.
Capture what you see:
Capture an image of what you see on your computer screen with Jing. Simply select any window or region that you want to capture, mark up your screenshot with a text box, arrow, highlight or picture caption, and decide how you want to share it.
Record what you’re doing:
Select any window or region that you would like to record, and Jing will capture everything that happens in that area. From simple mouse movements to a fully narrated tutorial, Jing records everything you see and do. Jing videos are limited to five minutes for instant, focused communication.
Send your video or screenshot:
Send your screenshots and videos all over the web. As soon as you’re done with your screen capture or screen recording, it’s ready to upload to Screencast.com and share through IM, email, social media, and more.
