Jing Project - Free Visual Communication Assistant

Jing Project was included by PCWorld in the list of the 100 best products of 2008. In fact, it was placed at the final rank -100 - in the featured listing. However, if I would be compiling the list of the best products personally, I would give it the higher ranking due to its functional characteristics users get for free.

What is Jing Project?
Jing Project allows users to create instant screenshots and little narrated movies (called "screencasts") of anything that’s happening on your PC desktop, and then share them with friends.

How Jing Project can help me?
Think of Jing as a supplement to all your chat discussions, email threads, forum posts and blog entries. You download a freeware installation file on your computer, and, upon installation, it sits nicely on your desktop, ready to capture and share your stuff at a moment’s notice. Simply select an area of your screen, capture it as an image or record it as a video, and then click Share. Jing conveniently places a URL to your content which you can paste instantly into any of your conversations.

Where does Jing send my images and videos?
  • A local folder
  • A network drive
  • Copy to your clipboard (images only)
  • An FTP server
  • Flickr
Is it true Jing is free?

Jing is an officially free product offering, including a complimentary account with 2 GB of storage and 2 GB of transfer bandwidth per month.
