Great App with Great Support

I have several apps for making GIFs and this is the best one I have, a lot of options and keyboard commands can be recorded or all keystrokes. At first it wasn’t working for me and support got back with me right away. After a restart all is working just fine. There are a lot of size options with custom sizes. I wish there were a way to have a custom target file size. I just ended up exporting the output and uploading it to a website that reduced the colors and got it to the file size I needed it to be able to upload to a forum.

Great little app

GIF Maker Movavi took a little getting used to but then it works well. My problem was that initially I didn’t understand the need to use the drop-down menu to select the desired size before saving, and the way the program was initially set up when it was installed it only saved a very small “Avatar.” Once I found the required menu the program works easily and admirably, quickly producing a really great GIF. Something I have wanted for quite some time.
