2016 Update – You are more than welcome to search out inexpensive screen capture programs. I did in the early days, but only use TechSmith products these days. I learned years ago, that they were a little more expensive but always easier to use and more reliable. Good Luck!

TechSmith Camtasia for Mac Camtasia for Mac

Differences between Camtasia for PC vs Camtasia for Mac! I have purchased and use Camtasia for the PC and for the Mac. The Mac version is less expensive, about $99 last I checked, but not as comprehensive as the PC version which has far more functionality.

Every Wednesday, we are sharing a mindmap of useful business tools.  You can view the map from the image, or download the actual mindmap if you like.  If you notice any tools that I have missed in the map, please leave a comment with the name of the tool and a link to it.  Many of these tools are going to be free or offer free trials, but many also do cost.  The purpose is not to provide a laundry list of freebies, but offer up some useful tools in an organized way.

If you do offer an update or addition, I will also update and re-upload the new mindmap file.

This post updated 3-16-2010 to include additional resources and an updated mindmap.
