Jing is a basic screen capture program which allows users to quickly and effortlessly create screen snapshots or video captures.
When you first start the program, you may be forced to create an account, but setting it up does not require email confirmation. Once up and running, you'll be given access to Jing's nice user interface which provides the option of capturing a specific region of the screen, an active window or the entire screen.
Once a screenshot has been taken with Jing, you can save it as a PNG image. If you've taken a screen videocast, you can save it as an SWF file. You may also upload it to Screencast.com if you desire.
In terms of editing screenshots, there are options of adding text to the image as well as arrows, creating annotations.
Jing provides a number of configuration options, the most important probably being image and video quality and hotkey selection.
All in all, Jing is a suitable program for creating screenshots but lacks some of the features some other programs might offer. It is also a little bit heavy in the scope of system resources which is surprising in its genre of software applications.Jing features and highlights:
