    Annotate, store all your screengrabs in the cloud, instant URLs to your clipboard, easy downloads, I mean, it's the perfect solution. Also, epic recording features for GIFs and videos.

    Giphy capture is a super easy and fun way to create gifs from screen recordings on Mac. You can change the quality and size and now you can also annotate with text.

    Made it a lot easier to capture screens and create gifs. The quality is also plausible.

    Just simple application that works, I must use it 2-3 times a day to show people programming tricks in slack

    The main website looks sketchy. The app icon looks sketchy. Even the app itself looks sketchy. But I use it all the time to get quick and dirty GIFs where the content matters more than the quality. Great for recording bugs and adding the GIF to the bug card. 👍 Plus — it's cross platform. Edit: Now looking at your ask for a high-quality screen recorder to GIF app, this is exactly not what you're looking for (but it could be up other people's alley!)
