Its fairly simple to use, doesn't take up a lot of HD space, and doesn't crash all the time. It doesn't make animated .gif files (that I have been able to find), but has a decent if simple editor. Basically a good editor, just not real fancy. If you want a good simple editor, this is the one.
Price: Free Trial ($49.95)

To create animated GIF images, select New from the File menu. Under Picture Type, select "Animated GIF".
