GifCam is easy and fun animated gif making app.

GifCam has a nice idea where the app works like a camera that stays on top of all windows so you can move it and resize it to record your desired area.

When you’re ready, click “Rec” to start recording or  click “Frame” to record a single frame.

GifCam is practical

While recording whenever GifCam finds the previous frame is same as the new recorded one it automatically adds delays (milliseconds the frame stays on screen) instead of adding a new frame and increasing gif size.

Add to this GifCam doesn’t draw the whole frame it draws greenscreen (transparent pixels) by comparing the alternately frames and just draw the different pixels, that saves a lot of kilobytes.

Tips

Here are some tips for using GifCam:

  • When recording a video select high quality option that will generate a wider green screen area than a low quality and reduce gif size.
  • The less color the gif has the less  gif size you get try to balance the quality with the size.
  •  ”Delete even frames” is your tool to delete half the frames and keep the animation (reasonable).
