What do people use to make their gifs?

I use giphy capture, ( https://giphy.com/apps/giphycapture ) and it's pretty ace, but it does have some limitations. Would be interested to know if y'all have some favourites. Ideally it creates high quality gifs, has trim functionality (length), crop (aspect ratio), file size (small or large), and converts to different file types (mp4 / gif / mov). Also, just testing this product hunt thing. Seems legit 😎 . Thanks for the invite!

    CloudApp 4.0

    Lightning fast media sharing and screengrabs

    Kate53Head of Social @ GitHub · Written
    CloudApp is the BEST! You can crop, record whatever you want up to 15 seconds, everything you "film" gets saved to the cloud, and all the gifs (and screenshots, videos, etc) you create can quickly + easily be downloaded or shared. I can't imagine using anything else anymore.
    I use cloudapp. +1 on everything Kate said. It's just great. In combination with cloudapp I also use ezgif.com to make edits / optimize. I found their optimization tools to be the most useful. You can get really specific about what you want. Even down to the level of deleting individual frames.

    • 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, www.screentogif.com is really great. It's portable and lets you annotate as well.
