Is there a better way to update my screen captures?

Dec 31, 2013

I'm creating eLearning for a client's software, and the screen captures will need to be updated periodically. I initially updated them by re-capturing a sequence of steps, inserted them into an existing scene, and then cut/pasted from the original slides into the new ones (captions, graphics, etc) and re-added the appropriate layers. This, of course, is a bit time-consuming (but less than re-creating all of those items).

Is there a faster way to do this? Can I somehow replace the original background image (the software screen captures) on the initial slides while keeping the additional items?

Thanks Ashley! I was actually just trying to figure out a good way to decide if I wanted to insert screen captures using the View mode or the Try mode and came across this question and had a tip... however, I still haven't found an answer to my question... do you know of an article that has a side-by-side comparison of the two so I can determine which mode best fits my needs?
