As for a standalone video converter that you could download, I don't have any experience with that. Someone else here may have some tips.
There are some Flash to video converter programs out there, check the usual software download sites. Camtasia Studio on Windows can import TechSmith-created SWF but may not support your files.
You can always play the SWF in your web browser and record it with our software as a workaround on either Mac or Windows.

I have had excellent resultes re-capturing [with Recorder] SWF flash videos playing in IE. Use CS 7's "record system sound", with mic off, to recapture the audio.
Likewise a PNG, JPG (really most image files) are flattened such that they are nothing more than an image.
That said, what might be your options?
Well, it's hard to know without fully understanding your predicament and goal, but I can think of a couple.
The first is I'm curious why you can't embed the SWF. That seems like it would be the easiest solution. Have you tried image embed code? I have a hunch your html software won't let you upload a SWF or MHT as an image, but--if you can insert embed code, we can get the SWF embed code and give that a try. Let me know if that's something you'd like to try.
The next idea would be to have a static image that links to a clickable SWF. This could be an odd user experience and could be hard to pull off elegantly, but the idea I was thinking was upload your PNG--and then make it a hyperlink to wherever your active SWF can live--like on your server or on Screencast.com for example.
The third idea is along the lines of what David is suggesting. You could bust out some tricky HTML moves and sort of "overlay" a clickable map over the image. Note that this is now really the functionality of the web page and has nothing much to do with the image itself. Events could be programmed such that when the cursor hovers or clicks on some area, some event occurs.
Feel free to send a video or screenshot of what you're trying to accomplish too.
If you use Snagit to add an object [circle] to the image being worked on, that image can be saved by Snagit in PNG or JPG format. But any hotspot functionality you added using Snagit [like to the circle] will be lost.
Perhaps look at this example of a map image with many hotspots ...
This SWF was created w/Snagit; it has about 100 clickable hotspots. This file can be accessed by using a link from anywhere, or by embedding it into your own HTML page.
But it is a large SWF; embedding will make for a slow HTML page load.
Best method might be to add a image button to your HTML page that opens this SWF.
i am attaching an image. this is how i need the output in png format..

Convert Jing video to something else.
This guide also applies to:
1. Easily extract audio and music from SWF file and save the extract file to MP3 format to play on iPhone, iPad, iPod, iTunes, MP3 Player, Android, Xbox, PlayStation, etc;
Convert SWF to other audio formats such as WAV, AAC, AC3, M4A, AIFF, DTS and so on in order to play SWF audio widely like Windows Media Player, iPad, iPhone, iTunes, MP3 Player, Android, etc;
2. Besides extract audio from SWF, it also helps you convert SWF files to almost all kinds of video formats such as SWF to MP4, SWF to MOV, SWF to AVI, SWF to FLV, and SWF to WMV and so on so that you can play SWF files anywhere, for example, Android, iTunes, QuickTime, Windows Media player, iPhone, iPad, Xbox, PlayStation, or edit SWF files in Windows Movie Maker, iMovie, FCP etc.
Firstly, it's free of charge! You can use it to convert videos as many as you want.
And it supports various formats. I often use it to convert some SWF video files to MP4 for its widely usage. And other formats like AVI, WMV, VOB, etc are available on this converter.
The most attractive feature, as for me, is that it is very simple to use. Just three steps - browse video file, configure settings and then click convert. That's done. Very easy, isn't it?
FYI, you can also edit video online on this video converter like trimming, cropping or adding some effects and watermarks.
Most of my friends around me like this tool. Hope my answer would help you.
