Jing 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.
