You are using an outdated browser which puts all net citizens at risk. As an incentive to upgrade to a current and thus much more secure product (we recommend the free Firefox browser), you won't be able to visit this site in its cute design, but in this rather boring printer-ready version only.

Easy Screencast Creation

If you’re tired of explaining the same things over and over again, then you might find this little application for Mac OS X and Windows very helpful: Jing. It allows you to create screenshots and screencasts from any area of your screen and add annotations or voice-over to it.

Once done, you can upload your image or movie either to the default provider Screencast (free within some bandwidth and diskspace boundraries), send them to a FTP server of your choice or save it locally.

Jing uses a simple interface and an original, but maybe not overly practical “sun” hotspot for invocation. However, on Mac OS X a setting exists which replaces the “sun” hotspot with a normal menu bar item.
