What's your favourite combo of apps to capture and edit GIFs on Mac?

Lately I've been using Quicktime + GIFBrewery 3 to capture and create GIFs of prototypes for clients. I'm not convinced it's the best approach. What do you use?

    I use Giphy Capture for a quick gif, but if I need a really high fidelity or optimized gif, I capture it using Screenflow and edit it Photoshop to make it smaller. Check out these awesome posts about this process:

    I'm a HUGE fan of CloudApp. It's stupidly easy to use and all your GIFs and pics get stored in the cloud and can quickly and easily be downloaded and/or shared. I really don't bother with any other services anymore, as this takes care of it all.

    CloudApp is fast and easy to use. It's a simple tool that's easy to pick up and get started, but has a fairly robust feature set. The free plan offers 15 second recording, but they have other plans that offer more and are still cheap. Here's a short gif recording I made with it:

    I use this product every day, mostly for customer support gifs. Doesn't let you edit, but you can always save as a gif and then edit somewhere else. Hope that helps!
