There are a whole bunch of different ways to create and edit GIFs on the Web, but if you’re after a simple desktop GIF maker, MovieLaLa’s is worth checking out.
It’s free to download and use (with limitations), and available for Windows and Mac.
Without paying any money, what you get is the ability to create GIFs that are two seconds long. If you upgrade to ‘Pro, ,you can apply filters, create a custom length GIF and can remove MovieLaLa’s watermark. Pro costs $1.99 a month for a single user, and from $4.99 per month for businesses or social media teams.
To cut a simple GIF, you just insert the URL of the video you want to use as the source or upload one from local storage. Free users can then just place the timeline marker for the two second clip to begin, and when happy with it, hit ‘create GIF.’
MovieLaLa says that the tool supports 200 other sites in addition to YouTube.
