Here is Useful Websites #16:

(Day 16 of my 30-day challenge!)

Do you remember what was the clue or hint I had given for this site? Let me see if you can still get it. The clue was:instant screenshots and screencasts

I thought this was a give-away clue. And to best of my knowledge, this website has been discussed by some Rainmakers here. None-the-less, I was committed to this - so...

Here is the answer:

This is a product from TechSmith. It comes in two flavor - Jing Free and Jing Pro (only $14.95/YEAR!)

So what do they do?

  • Take a picture or make a short video of what you see on your computer monitor.
  • Share it instantly via web, email, IM, Twitter or your blog.
  • Simple and free, Jing is the perfect way to enhance your fast-paced online conversations.

This is from their home page:

How you might use Jing

Free Version

Elegant and simple, Jing's minimal feature set keeps the focus on instant sharing. We think it's the perfect companion to the casual, fast-paced online conversations we all have every day.

Pro Version

Upload to YouTube & other video sites

With Jing Pro, you can upload straight to YouTube and Facebook with just a click! Plus, Jing uses the MPEG-4 AVC video format, which works seamlessly with other video sharing sites.

Share faster with smaller video files

No more bloated video files! Jing Pro produces tidy, compact files that are quicker to upload and download. Save time, save bandwidth

Record full-motion video from your screen

Jing Pro uses a premium video format (MPEG-4 AVC) that's better at recording rich content from your screen.


Give your videos personality by adding a little bit of you to the mix. You can offer viewers an introduction to your video, show them your new phone, send a video as creative as you want. Requires Mac OS X Leopard.

A few ways you might use Jing…

Stop repeating yourself. Say it again with video.

Communication without boundaries

I know, there is a lot written about this website on ActiveRain. I may share one more free such tool that would capture the screen. How about the next in this series?

I am sure you'll try this out - at least once and see if it is helpful to you or not.

Your comments/suggestions are welcome.


I have joined the blog-a-day blogathon for next 30 days. This is day 16 of the 30-day-challenge. Woohoo...more than half-the-way through!

In these 30 days, what better could it be to share something either I learned from some of the ActiveRainers or some other resource online and share it with the group?

At times, I may not know where and how I learnt about the websites and may not be able to give due credit to someone who informed me about that, but I still want to Thank all of them who contributed to my knowledge which I plan to share.

I am trying to use different field each day - and have now more than 30 such websites. Will I continue after 30 days? Let's see - first things first- I want to completed this 30-day challenge. I am trying to avoid some of the more familiar websites and focusing on some that may not be known to most of you - and still, yes, useful. 

You can create a free account on many of these websites and some of them may have some minimal subscription fees. I am sure, these websites will help you in your business - one way or another.

(Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with any of these websites not do I derive any income from any of these sites - except that I do subscribe to some of these services. Please use  them at your own risk - and let me tell you, I have used them and did not find it 'risky'.)


Look out for the next in series - Useful Websites #17 - and it will be....

Don't miss my post for tomorrow! The hint (so easy to decode...) Well, it's another screen capture tool - for free (and is also coming out with paid version!)
