ScreenToGif 2.19.1


ScreenToGif is an open source program that lets you to record a selected area of your screen, live feed from your webcam or live drawings from a sketchboard. Afterwards, you can edit and save the animation as a GIF or video. Also there's the Webcam Recorder and the Board Recorder.


  • Record your screen and save directly to a gif looped animation or a video.
  • Pause and continue to record or start over by discard the recording.
  • Move the window around to record what you want, it stays on top.
  • You can add Text, Subtitles, Title Frames, Borders, Watermarks, Drawings, etc.
  • Crop and Resize.
  • 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.
  • Very small sized and portable executable.

What's new in ScreenToGif 2.19:

  • You can set the recorder window to follow your mouse cursor.
  • You can add drop shadows (you can also set as an automated task).
  • Now you can add the progress overlay as a task.
  • Now you can add the border overlay as a task (also, you can set your border to expand outwards the frame).
  • Encodings done with FFmpeg have now a progress indicator.
  • The color selector has now a slider for the transparency and an eye dropper for sampling colors from your screen.
  • You can control the starting number for the progress text when displaying the current/total number of frames.
  • You can view the current time (cumulative) of the project based on the current selected frame (Statistics tab).
  • There's a more reliable feedback sending mechanism in use.
  • You can now insert lower case letters at the key strokes editor.
  • Added option to not loop the animation during playback.
  • Swedish and Korean translation were updated.
  • Added Vietnamese translation.

Bug fixes:

  • The screen recorder was pausing the recording when the windows were being dragged.
  • Some typos were corrected.
  • The triangle shape was impossible to use when regional/number settings were using comma as decimal separator instead of a period.
  • Other types of progress overlays were shifted 1 frame ahead, so the last frame will represent 100% of the progress.
  • When trying to edit the key strokes, there was a case in which you could not, because of a faulty validation preventing you from opening the window to edit.
  • When manually switching from a zoom different than 100% (example: 140%) back to 100% and later opening and closing a panel,
  • the zoom would go back to the zoom 140% instead of staying at 100%.
  • The tooltips for some buttons are now translatable.
  • Fixed issues with some windows not opening at the correct position.
  • Fixed the delay rounding for encoders v1 and v2, since gifs can only have delays of multiples of 10ms in each frame.
