LICEcap – Record your desktop and create animated GIFs

LICEcap, from Cockos Incorporated, is a nice and free tool that allows you to record your desktop screen activity and later save the activity as an animated GIF. This comes in handy when you are creating a small tutorial of some sort.
The nice thing about LICEcap is that it is not only free but also supports Windows and macOS.

Features and options:

  • Record directly to .GIF or .LCF.
  • Move the screen capture frame while recording.
  • Pause and restart recording, with optional inserted text messages.
  • Global hotkey (shift+space) to toggle pausing while recording
  • Adjustable maximum recording framerate, to allow throttling CPU usage.
  • Basic title frame, with or without text.
  • Record mouse button presses.
  • Display elapsed time in the recording.
