best screen recorder free softwares to save as animated gif

Hi friends,in this post I am sharing about free screen recorders and the most important features here is we can save the recording in animated gif.So we can place these images in a website (or) blog with less size.Eventhough microsoft expression encoder available, it is more time consuming process when a demo explanation is just for some seconds.First you have to convert in supported formats and uploading which is a main problem .Because for a ten seconds you have to upload the video which are in megabyte size.Next you have to embed and have to put in right place .  All of the softwares given below supports in windows7 and also in some other operating system .


Screen to gif
Screen to gif is a free software which helps to save as animated gif which you have recorded.Size will be ~800 kb in zip format.When extracted size will be ~8MB.
Screen to gif says they have the features of,

Record your screen and save directly to a gif looped animation.Pause and continue to record.Move the window around to record what you want.You can add Text, Subtitles and Title Frames.Edit the frames, add filters, revert, make yoyo style, change frame delay, add border.Export frames.Crop and Resize.You can work even while the program is recording.Remove frames that you don't want.Select a folder to save the file automatically or select one before encoding.Add the system cursor to your recording.

Gif cam
Another free software which records and save as animated gif.Actually it is one of a bahrain apps blog.Gifcam also have an option to export as avi format.Size will be ~700 kb in zip format.When extracted size will be ~1.7MB.
Some of the tips provided by gifcam are,

When recording a video select high quality option that will generate a wider
green screen and reduce gif size.The less color the gif has the less  gif size you get, try to balance the quality with the size.“Delete even frames” is your tool to delete half the frames and keep the
animation (reasonable).Add to this GifCam doesn’t draw the whole frame it draws greenscreen (transparent pixels) by comparing the alternately frames and just draw the different pixels, that saves a lot of kilobytes.
I kindly recommend to download this software from the above link mentioned.So you can avoid unnecessary adware , malware.

Licecap is used to record  an area of your desktop and save it directly to .GIF .Size will be ~300 kb in exe format.
Licecap supports operating systems Windows XP/Vista/7.Unfortunately licecap is not available in other systems.Features said by licecap will be,
