Hi,

Is there any way to take a screen grab with Jing and move directly to editing it in an application other than SnagIt? I dont have SnagIt at the office but do a lot of editing in Paint.Net, having a button to "Edit in Paint.Net" straight from the capture complete phase would be really useful.

Hi Jonathan,

Jing doesn't have the ability to create custom buttons for other applications, but there is a relatively easy workaround for what you are trying to do. The easiest is to select the "Copy" share destination as seen here: http://www.screencast.com/t/s9terxbsVtGi. Once the image has been copied to the clipboard, you can simply open Paint.Net and paste the image into your editing application.

I hope this helps out a bit, thank you very much for your feedback.

Hi Jason,

Your suggestion is the way I have been working up til now and it's OK. There is a quicker way. I have set Paint.Net as my default program for image files so I can now click the "Open File" link on the Jing "Capture Saved" dialog and we are on the way. Almost the functionality that I suggested.

Thanks for your efforts making Jing and SnagIt so great, it makes a lot of peoples live a lot easier.
