Not sure where Jing is saving your files? Would you like to set up a special file on your desktop, or in your My Documents folder where Jing will store all of the movies you make? The video on the right is designed to help you do just that.




So you have installed Jing. When Jing is on, you will see a sun at the top of your screen. When you roll over the sun with your mouse, you have three choices: Capture, History, and More. The 3 minute video on the right will get you on your way to “Taking Your First Capture.”



The clipboard is confusing to some, but simply put, it is the place information is saved on your computer when you Cut & Paste things in documents.

Jing uses the clipboard too. When you set up Jing to send your videos to, your FTP site, or some other location, Jing can automatically paste the URL (web link) to your clip board. Then, all you have to do is paste it into whatever document you are sending, for example an email back to a student or colleague.



Below I have listed the things that you will need to know to set up FTP in Jing so that your files automatically go to your FTP space. It is assumed that you have already watched the video above and have ordered and received your FTP username and password from Web Services.
