Macworld 2009: Techsmith’s Jing Pro

While I got to see a preview of Camtasia for Mac, it’s not ready for public viewing. What I can show you though, is the “Pro edition” of Jing released earlier this month.

Katie Lewis of Techsmith demos some of the new features Jing “Pro” offers, which includes:

  • YouTube export and uploading
  • MPEG-4 export, great for editing and podcasting
  • Jing branding removal

At $14.95 per year, Jing Pro comes at a decent price for the convenience of screencasting on the fly. Do note that the free version of Jing is still available complete with complimentary hosting on
