It sounds like the conversation is directed to screen capture images, but if anyone is in need of screen recording, the enterprise wide installation of Camtasia Relay is up and running.  You can find it under the guise of Class Capture at:

It's tied into Media Mill and Media Magnet, so online distribution and vodcasting is wrapped up in the service.

Does anyone have recommendations for a screen capture tool that:

- is free or, at the very least, cheap (SnagIt, at ~ $50 each, is too much),
- can also capture regions of a screen,
- allows some image editing, like the ability circle an object or draw an arrow to point to something specific in the image, and
- is very simple to use because it would be used by non-technical staff.  GIMP is too complicated for non-technical staff.

A lot of people are using Skitch for this. Disclaimer: I've played with it, but have no idea if its suitable for business use here (licensing, etc, etc).
