Create animated .gif from captured images

I am a math teacher and I love making screen capture videos of example problems that students can watch at home.  I also sometimes make animated gifs of problems worked out step by step in a loop to project on the board so that students can see the progression of the problem instead of just a static image or me working through it once.  

Snagit already supports screen shots, and it would be awesome if we could just

1. Choose some screenshots
2. Set a delay between each image and create an animated .gif

There are already websites that do this, but most are clunky and I think it would be a great addition to snagit.

Snagit for chrome might be something you'd be interested in. You can check out what I'm referring to here: http://blogs.techsmith.com/news-events/snagit-for-chrome-gif-maker/

Awesome advice! Any chance you can then bring these GIFs into Camtasia for Mac?

The quality of these GIFs is poor :(

Yeah, the quality is really really poor. It's horrible. I bought snaggit, after seeing how crisp the images were--with the free trial--but the gif maker is terrible. For that, screen2gif is much better. But free still screenshots, snaggit's images are so awesome. It's too bad that it doesn't make quality animated gifs.

I am also interested in this (didn't see the 'me too' button).  I do not think people should have to have Camtasia in order to do this.  And I should not need a separate browser plugin.  Doing it within Snagit editor would be much more finese.

I would also like to see it done with either video (mp4) or various image formats.

BTW, there was a topic about this already:  https://feedback.techsmith.com/techsmith/topics/animated_gifs_yet
