Capture an area of your desktop and save it directly to .GIF.

Overview

LICEcap can capture an area of your desktop and save it directly to .GIF (for viewing in web browsers, etc) or .LCF (see below). LICEcap is an intuitive but flexible application (for Windows and now OSX), that is designed to be lightweight and function with high performance. In addition to .GIF, LICEcap supports its own native lossless .LCF file format, which allows for higher compression ratios than .GIF, higher quality (more than 256 colors per frame), and more accurate timestamping. If you record to .LCF, you can play back the .LCF files within REAPER (and/or use it to convert to .gif or another video format)

Features:
  • 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.

What's new in LICEcap

Version 1.29:
  • New icon (thanks White_Tie!)
  • LCF: fix crash when error opening output file
  • Gif: use WDL_FileWrite to write to disk rather than fopen()/_wfopen(), lock files while writing
  • Various WDL updates (should have improved performance on macOS)

I've been looking for a tool like this for a while. If it supports image hosting services such as droplr, cloud app etc (with url copied to clipboard) then it will be really great!
