Six Colors is one of my favorite sites. Today Dan Moren found a neat app that Potatowire would love:

I’ve played with a bunch of different tools for making GIFs, and I’ve found them to be a mixed bag—especially the web-based ones, which all too often restrict certain features for “premium” users, or produce less than great quality results.

But I’ve been pretty pleased with GIFBrewery for OS X. It handles the videos I’ve imported with aplomb, supports cropping, resizing, and very easy trimming, which is key when making a good GIF. And because producing a compact animated image is important, it also lets you reduce the number of frames, change the delay between them, and simplify the color palette.
