Jing - Screenshot & Screencast Software

Jing - Screenshot & Screencast Software
Description:- Jing is a free screen capture application that allows you to capture screenshots and create videos.

Pain point/Need:- Screenshot of the desired area, recording a video from your desktop or clipping a running video.

Platform:- Windows, 

Mac Desktop

Usability:- Jing works with a sun-shaped icon with three spires. The lower left one lets you capture anything on your screen. The middle one looks at your capture history and the right one pulls up options. Jing's attractive application takes a sound, simple approach to capturing, it begins by dragging the X and Y axis to define your capture field and then take a still or start a recording. When you're done, save it to your computer or upload it to the site you want to share with. Making a screen capture, still image or video is always done with the help of a grid. Clicking and dragging X and Y axis will cause the entire desktop to turn grey and only the area captured will still be colored. The resulting video (of five minutes or less) can be saved in SWF format or stored on Screencast. Sharing the link to the stored version pulls up a new window with a Flash video on it. This video can be watched on this screen, but you can't embed the video itself anywhere else.


  1. Basic - Download a free trial version.
  2. Pro - $14.95/year -Simple capture with instant sharing.

Our Review:- Jing is absolutely free and the ease of use is amazing. It provides free online storage from Screencast and unlimited image and video capture powers. Jing is different from all other screen-capture softwares as it is designed to share images and movies with people quickly and easily while chatting or emailing, to help you get a point across. Using Jing to record a video screenshot is simple and straightforward. Capture anything on your screen as a static image or a movie, then save it or store it on TechSmith's free 2 GB of server space (hosted at Screencast.com). It allows you to easily add text, arrows or highlight sections of your screen capture. This is a great feature for teachers wanting to add notes on top of images or text, or want to indicate something to their students.
