Quick n Easy way to capture images and record videos

My experience of using Jing Project

Capturing Images and recording videos and sharing with your friends, colleagues and family is always a time consuming activity.
Today I came across a wonderful tool which makes this whole process a simplified, fast and its fun using it. Its called Jing Project. You can download it from here.
Jing is available for both Windows and Mac users.
The speciality of this software is that it gives the freedom to the user to select the section of the screen which needs to be captured or recorded (in case of video).

Uses of Jing:
1. Capture any portion of Screen.
2. Record series of actions and save the video as .swf file.
3. Save the captureed image/recorded content.
4. FTP the captured image/recorded content.
5. Upload it to your account in Screencast or Flickr.
The images used in this post are captured using Jing Project installed on my laptop running Windows XP.
Hope you find Jing Project fun and useful!
