In addition to Camtasia Studio, I also use SnagIt to snag a screen shot as a thumbnail for the project and Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 for slides.

Lon,

Top Marks.

Lightboxes are impressive and your tutorial explains how to do them in a common sense, no techno jargon way. Even I followed it!

Great video, fun to watch and highly educational.

As they say, Friends don't let friends make crappy videos :)

Cheers
