Best GIF creation tool ever

I have been using GIPHY Capture for years now in fact I think since it was relessed and I have yet to find a better application for GIF capturing. What it does is allows you to record a gif from capturing it from your computer screena and then you get the option to fine tune it, trim it down so the gif plays properly, and the ping pong option. The ping pong option means the gif will play forwards and then backwards. This is a great app because you can pick the size of the gif you want to save as and the app let’s you know the file size before you save it. Also a tip, if you leave the application open it will store the recent gifs you created util you close it. 5 star app works flawlessly and it’s the only tool I use for creating my gifs.

The Best Gif Creation Solution for Me

I’ve been using this for months & it’s my go-to app for creating GIFS. The user interface is sleek & very functional. I love how you can trim clips, download your GIFS in different resolutions & sizes, immediately upload the GIF to GIPHY for those quick one off GIFS you don’t care about and just want to share a quick link with someone. I really haven’t had problems with this app.

Would be 10x better with clipboard and/or share functionality

It’s nice, but it would be great if there was the ability to just drop the recording onto the clipboard, or even share it via Slack/email/whatever without having to save, manually upload and manually delete the saved file.
