      Greenshot vs Jing opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Greenshot is still a legitimate alternative to Jing, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      Jing allows voice annotation, that makes it special. Greenshot does mere screenshots.

      Some users think LightShot is a great alternative to Jing, some don't.
      bigmeanmikerich For stills, Lightshot is a great drop-in replacement for Jing. The same quick, easy ability to draw boxes, add text, copy to clipboard, or save your image are all present. Additional annotation tools and an option to automatically downscale retina displays are actually making me like LightShot more than I liked Jing!

      Jing's main function is video, not still shots.

      IndependentCustard99 I tried this and if it does do video capture it is well hidden. Screen capture is as basic as it gets, press print screen.
