Jing is a screencasting computer program launched in 2007 as Jing Project by the TechSmith Corporation. The software takes a picture or video of the user's computer screen and uploads it to the Web, FTP, computer or clipboard. If uploaded to the web, the program automatically creates a URL to the content so it can be shared with others. Jing is compatible with Macintosh and Microsoft Windows. Users must sign up for an account before using the software.
On 6 January 2009, TechSmith released Jing Pro, a paid premium version of Jing.
In February 2012, Techsmith announced Jing Pro is to be retired. All users (regardless of subscription) could use this service until 28 February 2013.
