Jing is a free screen capture tool that comes from Techsmith, the makers of SnagIt! the premier screen capture and editing tool.
It’s pretty cool! Aside from being free, Jing has many great features, streamlined into one easy-to-use tool that resides as a little ‘sun’ at the top center of your screen. Once you make a capture, you can save it to your PC, share it, upload by ftp or to a free Screencast.com account (with 2GB of space) that you can set up when installing Jing, and much more! You can even record short screen videos.
There is also Jing Pro which adds even more features.
