How To Use Camtasia

There are some tools that, once you use them, you wonder how you ever did without. For me, Camtasia is one of those. I did go for years without it, but when it comes to making screen recording videos, and editing them to make them look the way you want them, it really is hard to beat.

(If you haven’t tried it, you can get a free 30 day Camtasia trial here)

The real beauty of it is that it is so simple to use. Once you learn the basics, it is very straightforward – even for someone as technically challenged as me 🙂

So if you are thinking of getting Camtasia (or have recently got it), I think you’ll find that this set of video tutorials will be very useful. They were created by Charles Harper (as a PLR product) so I bought it and have added the videos for you below.

Incidentally, if you would like to get the PLR to these to use yourself, either to add to your own blog or to sell you can get it here.

Here’s a full list of video titles.

Further Tools & Resources

I hope you found this useful. 

You can get more details about Camtasia here, and if you would like to try it out, you can get a free 30 day trial here

It is not the cheapest software (although the free trial gives you a chance to try it out first), but it is probably the best screen recording software on the market.

If you are more interested in making simple videos from articles, then Pictory is probably a better bet – you can see my walkthrough and demo of Pictory here

If you have any questions, please do get in touch – there’s a CONTACT link above.
