Thanks Joe!
That's right- Jing will not be updated, but our new, free, more performant, screen & video solution is in the works as seen in the link above.

too many comments in that link above, can you post a clean link to Capture, please.
On Catalina, and deeply missing JING. Log time customer, Please reply.

THanks Rick. That's right, do that, for now.
Direct downloads of the app are coming soon, but not ready yet. We're trying to take feedback into account as fast as possible.

Just updated to Catalina and I wasn't able to find TechSmith Capture for mac. What a bad business decision this was. I'm sure so many users will go and start using other capture apps because of this.

Why be such a crybaby? You've gotten an awesome, free product for years. Just use the free version of Snagit or buy it.
Bitch, bitch, bitch.

Actually, I paid for the pro version back in 2010/2011 sometime, but feel free to be rude to a new user, no problem

There's a free version of SnagIt?

There is just the free trial of Snagit.

I'm sorry this transition is frustrating, where Jing is not working on the new release of Catalina, but Capture (which does work on Catalina) does not have all of needed features yet.
As of this writing, TechSmith Capture:
  • works on Catalina
  • Has screen capture (screenshots)
  • Has video capture
  • Has webcam capture
Image annotations (arrow, rectangle, highlighter, callout) are coming soon.

are you guys going to make it as easy as Jing is/was? Cause that was the selling point for a lot of us!

Ease of use it definitely a high priority. Hearing what our (broad!) userbase thinks made Jing easy to use is helpful.

LightShot works on Catalina, similar to what JIMG was for capture, just not as robust.

Bring back jing. Snagit is a bloated piece of crap. Consumes x10 memory and more cpu than jing did.
