Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I want a good extension/user script which would be able to capture screen (selected area) and then join these captured images into animated gif.

Is there one?

That is some complicated task for Chrome ... :) –  Shiki Sep 2 '11 at 11:26
And for firefox? Or other browsers? –  genesis Sep 2 '11 at 11:27

You could try: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/super-gif-capture/algmheobonijciecgfbapkhoonnhlnpe. It's a chrome extension that allows you to do it.

As of 9/JUN/2014 the extension isn't working on Chrome 35 on Ubuntu 13.10, and has comments from windows users too –  ReactiveRaven Jun 9 at 13:48

While there aren't any extensions that I know, there is a host of applications that create animated gifs. Besides the Photoshop, you can also download Advanced Gifeditor, MS GIF animator.

You can also use Paint.net and GIMP. As far as grabbing screen clips, you can use the Windows built in Snag it. Or a large host of applications that exist for this.
