Testing Byzanz

So, it works great... just have to make sure that I dont make mistakes, because I have no idea how to edit a gif file currently...

I suppose one of those Photoshop products has that functionality, but I use free software whenever I can. Can't buy expensive software that I dont use often. So I try to make do with free, beta or trial ware whenever I can.

I wonder if Gimp (GNU Image Manipulation Program) will help me out here.
