  • Capture what you see.Initiate a capture by clicking Jing's happy, always-ready "sun" icon...or pressing a hotkey of your choice. You can capture a window, pane, or region. Make a point.Need to emphasize or explain? Mark up your screenshot with a basic text box, arrow, highlight, or rectangle. Share instantly.Just tell Jing where to send the screenshot and—BAM!—it's there and ready to share. When you send to a destination like Screencast.com or Flickr, Jing even places a hyperlink on your clipboard. No need to wait.Simply paste (CTRL-V or Command-V) the link into an IM chat, email, forum post, Twitter, anywhere...and when the person clicks it they see your freshly-uploaded screenshot. Like magic.
  • Digital communication toolThat means users can work on and enjoy Voicethread presentations at any time--even if their "partners" are sleeping a million miles away!Let's face it--sometimes working with digital partners can be pretty boring.  After all, email and discussion boards are nothing more than written text.  Voicethread gives users something interesting to talk about---pictures!  What's more, being able to actually hear one another makes digital communication through Voicethread much more personal. 
  • Project types are collaborative, comments, and narration of still photos
