Giphy cuts out the middleman with DIY GIF-making

Tired of fruitlessly searching the internet for the right GIF? Find an immensely-giffable clip but don't have the m4dl33t Photoshop skills necessary to actually create it? You are in luck because Giphy has unveiled a new online Gif-creation tool called GIFmaker that does all the heavy lifting for you.

The process, as described in the video above, is pretty straightforward. You simply drop in your desired YouTube link or generic video URL, set the start and stop points, type in a caption and let the program do its thing. Users can also add tags, source URLs and even adjust the image's privacy settings. From there, it's simply a matter of uploading the file onto Giphy or unleashing it on your sure-to-be-impressed social media followers.
