Jing – Quick and Easy Screen Capture tool
Very often, I find myself looking for a new web tool that will make my life easier … because when you spend as much time online as I do, you want any help you can get!! 🙂 Recently, I came across a fantastic little download, through one of my discussion lists, that has saved me quite a lot of time taking screen captures, pasting them to publisher, cropping and then saving. This wonderful little tool lets me just draw a square around what I want to capture, and then crops and saves it all for me to a nice, crisp .png file – FANTASTIC!
‘What is this wonderful little download?’ I hear you ask. Well, it is called Jing, and could not be simpler to use!
The free version is great, and allows you to do the basics. For those of you who tweet, you will be amazed at how simple things just became!
For creating ‘how to’ files, the screen capture that Jing takes also allows you to add arrows, text etc (see below) to your image as well – such a timesaver!
Already, this tool has saved me SO much time. I hope you find it useful too. 🙂
