Many know I have used SnagIt and Camtasia from Techsmith for many years to record screen captures for documents or tutorials or to record videos. They are a great team producing great software that I use every day. I have even given some licenses of this great software away for contests. Why put something to text when you can can say a million words in a quick screen capture or video and make the point more clear. One hidden Camtasia gem, is the ability to create a animated GIF of your recorded video which can be viewed in any browser in discussion forums or emails.
Now Techsmith is posting 30 demos in 30 days showing tutorials of Camtasia features. These are great and worth a look if you use Camtasia. Hopefully the animated GIF production is highlighted in the 30 days of demos <hint>
Now the SnagIt team needs to do the same 30 day demo thing <hint hint>.
