After the launch of different GIF creating applications, now you don’t need the expertise in Photoshop to create the cool GIF images. There are some great apps available on Mac App Store which make it really easy to create a GIF on your Mac. So, let’s start with the blog.
1. GIF Brewery 3
The GIF Brewery 3 is one of the best applications for creating fine-crafted GIFs for Mac users worldwide. With this app installed on your Mac PC, you can create GIF out of anything, whether it be videos on your laptop or the ones on the internet. So, to generate GIF with this application, follow these easy steps.

Step 3: Now the real thing begins. You have to choose the suitable option for you to create the GIF. In this tutorial, I am going to explain it by importing a video or a link. So, click on Open Video and import an existing video on your Mac.
Step 4: After adding the video, your video will be now visible on your screen with a timer. Now, set the start and the end-times to your required time of which you want to create GIF.

For creating GIF from any other method, you have to follow the same procedure once your video is loaded to the application.
2. GIPHY Capture
Another application for creating GIF image on your Mac is the GIPHY Capture. But, one main disadvantage of this application after using the GIF Brewery 3 is that you cannot create a GIF by inserting a link, the app first downloads the video and then lets you convert it to GIF. This could be a major issue if you want to create the GIF from a long video. This application lays an overlay on your screen and records only the part you want to convert to GIF. So to start with, follow these steps:
Step 1: The first step in creating the GIF using GIPHY Capture is to first download and install it from the Apple Mac App Store.
Step 2: Now, you have to open the video from which you want to create GIF. Once your video is fully loaded and you are ready, launch the application.
Step 3: After launching the application, now you have to adjust the application window to the size of the video you are playing and click on the Record Button. Once you start recording, everything will fade out a little bit as compared to the recording window.
Step 4: After completing your recording, now Double-click on the video clip to open the editing window. Now, its time to edit your recorded video. You can set the start and end point, decide the pixel size of the GIF, select the loop type, and the frame rate.
Step 5: Once you are done with your editing, you have two options available. You can save your GIF to your Mac PC or you can directly upload the GIF to GIPHY. With this final step, you are done with creating your GIF image from video.
