Jing: Screen Captures and Screencasts Made Easy

Jing Project

I have to tell you, this looks like a fabulous download. Called Jing, the application lets you create and share screen captures (with lots of annotations) and screencasts with simplicity and ease.

I've never created a screencast, but I can easily see how useful they can be. They're great when you need to see how to do something on your computer, and since I offer computer tips and tutorials on my blogs, Jing seems like it will be a fine fit.

Once you've created your screen capture or screencast, all you have to do is click "Share," and you'll have a link automatically added to your clipboard, which you can then paste into an email, an IM, or your blog.

Check it out for yourself from this video tour.
