Does anyone have an alternative application for screen captures other than SnagIT?  SnagIT is great but I was hoping to find something comparable that is free and opensource.  I have tried Screenpresso which is not too bad but when I try and resize the images they do not retain quality very well.

 

I have also used paint.net as a graphics editor which is very nice and I recommend it for that but it does not do any screen capture or region capture.

 

While on the topic, does there even exist an alternative for Camtasia that is worth talking about?

 

Thanks fro the feedback!!

Jing and Screencast are a good alternative to Camtasia.
Thanks Mr. B!  I thought you still had to have a licensed version of Camtasia on a server in order to use Jing?
I use ScreenHunter from http://www.wisdom-soft.com.  I use the free version.  It does exactly what I need.

Camstudio 2.0 http://camstudio.org/ is open source, and a fairly competent screencast tool, though not as friendly as others. I have used it with success.

 

PicPick - http://www.picpick.org/ Screen capture, very simple image editor (works great for highlighting things on your screen captures), plus quite a few other tools. Very recommended.

I co-sign Camstudio...it's basic, but i found easy to use. The voice over option is great to use audio to talk viewers through what is happening.
