capture screen action as GIF animation ScreenToGif is a small, portable program that enables you to record anything on your screen and save it as GIF animation. You can freely move the capture frame to record video on a web page or screen activity on your desktop. The capture can be paused and resumed and once you finish recording, the program brings up a simple editor that lets you preview the recording and delete any unnecessary frames.Since ScreenToGif does not include any GIF optimization features, the resulting GIF files will be rather large. You can use a free GIF Optimizer to reduce the file size of your animation.
