Jing is a very inexpensive solution for boht PC and Mac users. YOu can use the free version, limited to capturing and posting without editing, or for $15. you can download a version that allows you to capture up to 5 minute clips. Download free Jing here http://www.techsmith.com/download/jing/default.asp. The Jing site provides great step-by step instructions. It is worth reviewing the instructions.
