    I'd like to record my drawing sessions to share online. Does anyone else do this? What program do you recommend? Free would be preferred, but I don't mind buying something if the price is reasonable and it work well / isn't too difficult to use. Thanks!

    Are you faniliar with Step Recorder? It is a part of Windows. If not, you may want to look it up.

    Thanks. I'll look into Camtasia Studio.

    Step Recorder doesn't work for what I want. It just takes screenshots of what apps / menus / etc you've used / clicked on. What I'm looking for is something to record a video of my drawing on the screen.

    Ouch! $300 is way outside of my price range. Thanks for the suggestion though. Back to Goog...er, Bing. :)

    I think that Camtasia is also sold separately, just the recorder. It has been a long time since I used the last time.

    I'm trying Bandicam right now. It's only around $40 to buy after the trial; much more affordable.

    I tried searching for a recorder-only version of Camtasia, but haven't had any luck yet. Thanks again!

    I think what you might want to look at is CamStudio. Not quite as nice and polished as Camtasia, but the price is right.

    screencast-o-matic.com

    The best I use. Gives options to save and edit length, add notes or upload to youtube and other places.
    Free, but if you want more features, just a little bit extra.
