I get this question a lot. The question tells me a few things:
- you LIKE the animated GIFs here on thatjeffsmith – cool, I’ll keep doing more
- you want to make your own – awesome, I’m helping make the world a more animated place
- that’s pretty much it, I should have said a couple of things, oh well
I use Camtasia Studio 7 from TechSmith
If you want a more official ‘answer’ to this question, the cool folks at Techsmith have their own blog post on the subject.
