A picture is worth a thousand words, and a video will show you dozens of pictures every second. Do the math and you’ll find this amounts to a lot of words. But as video tends to take up lots of space, we find a GIF is a very happy medium.
Recordit is a handy dandy GIF maker for Mac and PC. It works by recording a screencast of a portion of your screen. Then it processes what you’ve captured into an easily shareable GIF. Voila! Use it for simple, sharable demonstrations or how-to visuals.
