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!

    • Always love a good gif recorder!! Once you have one you find more and more practical uses for it.

      For those of you on PC, is really great. It's portable and lets you annotate as well.
