If you use the Chrome browser, look for the Awesome Screen Recorder Chrome
app. Awesome is a great plugin for web browsers, but the Chrome app extends
the features to record the desktop.

For image editing, Iâve been happy with GIMP, and was just informed about
Krita, so Iâll be checking that out later. https://krita.org/

For vector diagrams, I used to use Inkscape. But when I worked in an
environment based on Atlassian Confluence, the company invested in the
Gliffy plugin, and I enjoyed using that for flowcharts and other system
diagrams.

Have fun!
