May be of interest to people on this list. It is a somewhat new product from Techsmith. It works on both Mac and PC.

It has an *interesting* interface, a little different than other screen capture software I have tried.

The concept of Jing is the always-ready program that instantly captures
and shares images and video…from your computer to anywhere.

Jing is nice because it works on multiple platforms, but the workflow
in Skitch (OSX-based) is far more streamlined.

I recently wrote a blog post[1] about it to show how we're using it
to our process for providing feedback for wireframes and when
submitting bug tickets. It doesn't handle video, but for screenshots
and such... it's become such a vital addition to my tool belt.

Thank you Robby! Skitch, video: http://plasq.com/skitch#demo looks
perfect for one of my clients.. they usually put all their 'ideas'
in to a ppt. I've put them on to this app, and with the upload to
flickr functionaly, we should be able to get a more fluid
conversation going with a closed flickr album. Cheers! -p

I've been using Jing for internal sharing. If someone doesn't already have a
tool to use I think it's worth a look. It's a lightweight tool but quick,
easy to use, and free.

Still captures only capture the viewport, not a whole page, however, you can
select different regions of a window or screen - for example, full screen,
just a toolbar, etc.. There are also some rudimentary annotation tools.

Jing records video as well so you can use it to capture, for example,
prototype demos or, of course, training - or demonstrate reference examples.
It records audio simultaneously.

You can email the finished capture or share it via Jing's online sharing
service - free for a little storage space, fees for more.

I have installed http://www.jingproject.com/
It has a cool UI with some nice ideas and it%u2019s also pretty easy
to use, the only major problem is that you cannot copy an image to
your clipboard and paste it in another program (Outlook e-mail for
instance),
They missed the most common task for some reason, so, bottom line
I%u2019m going to stay with %u2018Snagit%u2019

What appeals to me most about Jing is the quick video snagging. I always
want to capture interesting dynamic interactions for later reference
(you never know when a site will be redesigned and your great example
will be gone)!

This is the first tool I've seen that can help me do this quickly, but
to be honest I've never looked into it much. Are there other great tools
I've missed?

How do other people keep track of interesting interaction examples?

(I've used Skitch at home but we use Windows in the office, so I'm stuck
there...)
