Installing the free copy of Camtasia 3

The generous folks at TechSmith provided a full copy of their Camtasia 3 product on the CD of the book - it is the same product that sold for $300 - and it comes to you free on the CD of the book!

On this page, I'll walk you through the installation of the product - it's actually so simple that you can even skip this section and go straight to the page that shows you how you can use Camtasia 3 to capture your PowerPoint presentations...
