The 5 Best Sites and Apps to Find, Create, or Edit the Perfect GIF

By | May 2, 2022

You can’t go online today without viewing GIFs, the incredible animated image files that have become the language of the web. From funny memes to capturing the perfect part of a video, GIFs can be endless sources of entertainment or information.

Most major social networks now support GIF files, so you’ll want to get in on the action. But where do you find the perfect GIF? How do you make it yourself? Awesome Websites and Apps gives you some better sites and tools. Try them all and you will be all set.

Gfycat (Web): Find or Upload GIFs Without Registering

Yet another one of the great no-registration websites, Gfycat is a treasure chest of reaction GIFs as well as a place to upload your own. Think of it as a GIF version of Imgur, although Imgur allows GIFs themselves now.

Browse Gfycat trending GIFs, check categories and hashtags, or search the database to find the animation that meets your needs. You can upload GIFs to the site without registering. There is also an option to upload a video or copy-paste a YouTube informasi which will automatically convert to a GIF.

GifGrabber (Mac OS X) or LICEcap (Windows): Desktop screenshot tool for creating GIFs

We’ve already talked about several Chrome extensions for creating screencast GIFs, but Mac users will be pleased to know that the best tool for the job is exclusive to OS X – and completely free. GifGrabber appears on your screen as a translucent green window. Resize to your liking. Once you’re ready to be your screencast, click “Start Capture” and GifGrabber will record the next 30 seconds of whatever is happening on your screen.

The captured GIF can then be previewed by clicking the GifGrabber icon in the Menu Bar. You can also crop the GIF file, and reduce its size by changing the resolution to 50% or 25% of the original capture.

LICEcap, available for Windows and Mac, functions similarly to GifGrabber, although the latter is better. But for Windows users, it’s not a bad choice at all.

The advantage of using these desktop programs instead of online solutions is that they work much faster, as your files are stored directly on your hard drive. Converting video to GIF can drain processor power, and in my experience the desktop app works better.

Giphy Create (Web): A Collection of Web Tools for Editing Gifs, Adding Text, Filters, and More

Giphy is one of the most popular collections of GIFs on the Internet, but its GIF Create suite is a hidden treasure chest. Especially important about these tools is how easy they are to use. You can upload your own GIF, grab it from the Giphy database, or get a third-party informasi, and you’ll be good to go.

This is a set of four tools. GIF Maker lets you turn YouTube videos and links into GIFs. Slideshows can be used for GIF mashups. GIF Caption is the easiest tool I’ve found for adding subtitles or annotations to your GIFs – especially useful when creating GIFs for practical purposes like providing instructions.

GifGifs: Resize, Optimize, Crop or Rotate GIFs

Twitter limits GIF sizes to 5MB, so there may come a time when you should shrink your GIF to fit the file size limit. Plus, the smaller your GIF is, the faster it will load, so it’s always best to keep it efficient. GifGifs has all the tools you need for this.

GifGifs has simple tools to resize, optimize, crop, flip, rotate or split GIFs. There’s also a tool for adding subtitles, but the aforementioned Giphy Create is better for that. It is very easy to use and does nothing more than understand the basics of trimming and other editing.

Gif Me! Camera (Android, iOS, Windows Phone): Create and Edit GIFs with Phone Camera

Your smartphone already has a great camera, but the right app can make all the difference. Gif Me! Camera lets you record 15-second videos and automatically converts them into GIFs to save or share.

The app comes with some built-in tools too, like adding filters to your GIFs, annotating them with text, and so on. It also has a handy video light button to make sure you can make good GIFs even in dark environments.
