Add progress bar (Since Gifs auto replays)

Would be nice to add a progress bar feature so users know that the animated gif is repeating. Often times when sending an animated gif to users, they wouldn't know that the GIF is repeating.

Great work! I've been using this tool and find it really useful.

I find myself recently using ScreenToGF more and more to provide answers over at Blender Stack Exchange, and it provides a very quick way to show how to do something which is absolutely fantastic and a time saver for both the questioner and who answers.

Some users do complain that it may be hard to follow a lengthy GIF, or one that has no clear beginning or ending marks, so I second this request.
A progress bar bellow or even a frame counter would definitely be very helpful for these situations..

For the time being, we can use the clock gadget provided by windows and transparency it by 60%, and use seconds hand to indicate the starting and ending point of the gif video.

Or perhaps use any desktop overlay timer

I'm currently working with this feature.

User will be a blue to add a progress bar, or a timer as an overlay.
