What is Jing? Jing is free software that does three really useful things:
- It captures what you see on your computer as an image you can label with arrows, text, boxes, and highlighting.
- It records what is on your computer screen as a video you can easily post online or download and save. There is a 5 minute time limit on your Jing videos.
- Quick & easy sharing of your Jing images and videos: get a link to share a video or image. No more email attachments!
Jing is a free screen capture software made by TechSmith.com. Check out these 2 examples of Jing in action:
