Animated GIFs can be created with an image editor that supports layers, like Photoshop or the GIMP.
GIMP is a freely distributed piece of software, so that's probably a good option.
The main use of using a GIF format is that it allows the storage of multiple images. This allows an animated picture.
GIF files are stored with a limited pallet, which can hold up to 256 colors. The 256th color is usually reserved for transparency.
Because of this, GIF files are not very good for storing photos or art. They are excellent for pixel art and simple drawings.
However, dithering is one method in which more colors can be expressed while working from a limited pallet. This is done by making a pattern of pixels which intermingles one color with another.
There are goodtutorials online of how to make an animated GIF in the GIMP. Consult those if that's what you want to do!
There are also websites which can convert a portion of video into an animated GIF. These usually employ dithering.
