A Snag It is always better with GIF

Tech Smith recently sent its Chrome fans some love. In addition to screen capture with annotation, and screencasting, you can now create animated Gifs.


Screencasting with Animated Gifs in mind must be kept short - 20 seconds or less. This can be a struggle but forces one to target the video to specific actions.

More often than not you will be sharing the Gifs on Google+ but sharing a link does not do the Gif justice. After you contruct the Gif it is automatically saved to your Google Drive. I would not select download or link to share on Google+.

If you have not shared the Gif previously,  share it by Share Google Photos - Google Drive and search for .gif. 


If, on the other hand, you have previously shared it in a post, simply Share Google Photos - Photos and select your Gif.
