Jing – A Screenshot and Screencast Software

Software testing is always a challenging field. Beside many other factors software tester always face challenges to clearly communicate the defect.

Defect description, severity & priority are always major area of concern for any defect. Clearly described defects help developer and other stakeholder to understand the concern.

Beside these it is always a good idea to support the defects with the help images and videos. Many free and paid tools are available to solve this purpose.

As a software testing professional I have used many of such tools but my favourite one is Jing – a FREE tool by TechSmith

“Jing is a computer service that lets you capture basic video, animation, and still images, and share them on the web.”

Things I love about this tool is its simplicity / usability to capture and save the concerns.
