The Jing Project

⚠️ This is an old post

It's possibly been exported and imported from at least three different blogging platforms over the years. That probably means, at best, there are broken images and links. If the post is technical in nature, any advice is probably out of date and irrelevant. Or it is really old, it was the wafflings of a teenager with too much time on his hands working out what blogging is… If it is the latter I would probably cringe if I re-read it. But it's here because it's part of my past, not my present.

You've been warned! Onwards…

The amount of times I end up taking screenshots for people who want help with something on their computer is fairly high, because most of the time it is quicker to send them a couple of pictures showing a step by step guide of what is happening than spending hours on the phone getting them to click a mouse. So I have to take my hat off to the guys who created Jing… Basically what it does is it takes a photo of a specific area and then allows you to play with it, draw/type on it, then upload it to the world wide web… Generally very cunning! Click here for what it uploaded

It can also do video… clicky.

At the moment it is in a free stage so get it while it is around:

Also an additional note: it is towel day tomorrow :)
