Giphy Capture

Turn anything on your screen into a GIF!

Ryan Hoover- Founder, Product Hunt
Giphy Capture is my go-to and makes it easy to trim and edit the quality of a GIF to reduce file size (which can quickly become large).
David Hutcheson- Digital Customer Support Evangelist
If you are creating instructional gifs or anything that uses screen capture, Giphy Capture is wonderful. Super easy, intuitive interface - Record, annotate, upload to their service or download locally in seconds. *Note: It is currently only available on Mac*
Ryan Hoover- Founder, Product Hunt
Giphy Capture is the best GIF-creation tool I've tried... and I've used a few. 😉 My favorite part is the ability to crop the GIF and modify the size/frame rate so it's not too large (pro tip: Twitter won't accept GIFs larger than 10MB).

As a denizen of the internet, I frequently find myself wanting to turn YouTube videos into GIFs, but I've never been very good at doing it on my own. Fortunately, the internet's overwhelming love for GIFs has resulted in the creation of some pretty simple GIF creators, and Giphy is releasing a brand new one this afternoon.

Taking screenshots will never be the same again for you. Huge Cloudapp fan.
Kate- Head of Social @ GitHub
Screenshots, gifs, videos, CLOUDAPP DOES IT ALL 🙌 And not only does it do it all, but it does it so much better than any other similar product. They've got cloud storage, such efficient link sharing, easy downloads... If you ever use screenshots or record your screen for any reason, you should be using this.
TrooMobile- New Product Junkie!
It does just what it says: Communicate faster, visually. It's so much easier to snap a screenshot and "point" the issue or bug or whatever then to try and explain using words :)
