    I like Snagit for screen capturing and it can save as animated GIF.

    I'm personally a big fan of Cloudapp, great for capturing screenshots, GIFs, and video.

    SnagIt for sure, but I use Camtasia more (same company, TechSmith, makes both, so they share files back and forth really well). Camtasia and SnagIt are both really great for screen recordings etc, I prefer Camtasia for the ability to edit more and adding video effects.

    Liz Feller thanks for the tip, there are lots of GIF making apps - what I was really after was animating the gifs, with e.g., a zoom effect. Downloading the trial now. I was using this Keynote.app method to Zoom into screenshots and then turning that into a GIF. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQn1Q-ASU7A which works okay. Looking forward to seeing if Camtasia performs better. :)

    absolutely, Camtasia has it under Animations > Zoom and Pan effect. You can adjust the size and duration etc., very nice.
