How to Create GIF on Mac: Most Amusing Ingredients for Messaging

Follow this interesting guide to converting images/videos into awesome GIFs on your Mac to make your messaging experience more hilarious!

GIFs have become almost indispensable for a fun-loving messaging. I don’t fail to use them to liven the mood of the conversation. At times when I want to make the mood of the chat livelier, I create awesome GIFs on Mac and unleash them to keep the tempo alive!

There are quite a few apps like GIPHY Capture and PicGIF which allow you to create great-looking GIFs (Check out this list of Mac Apps to create GIF.) However, I find EZGIF website more convenient. It has plenty of editing options to let you give the desired look to your pics. Besides, you don’t need to pay anything to get your work done.
