To make GIFs with GIMP, you're going to need both GIMP itself as well as
GIMP Animation Package (or GIMP GAP, for those who like recursive acronyms).
Get GIMP: http://www.gimp.org/

GIMP recognizes animated GIF files as a file with multiple layers (one
layer for each frame),
which makes it easy to resize the whole file as needed. Thus, when
creating an animated GIF
from scratch, it's as easy as adding new layers. And you can use it to
add text to an animation,
for memes galore. With GIMP, you can also specify whether the file
(not all of them should), and even specify a different delay time
That provides some pinpoint precision to your work. Note that to make
this all work,
you need the GIMP Animation Package.
