Installing a Desktop Recording Program

Byzanz:

This Recording Program allows capturing the Desktop, Windows or Regions and creates an animated GIF file.
Pros:    The GIF file is small, and thus portable, and the program is easy to use and install.
Cons:    GIF files are animated images and dont support pausing, resuming, or playback from intermediate points.

Gtk-RecordMyDesktop:

This Desktop Recording Program is better at meeting the requirements of most.
NOTE: Make sure to install "ubuntu-restricted-extras" otherwise this program may or may not work.
Pros:    Fantastic, fast and easy to use.
Cons:   This program has greater pre-requisites, sometimes has issues on certain configurations. Also, it produces files in the ogg format.

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.
