Isn't ready for prime-time for "serious" GIF makers. If you move the crop area by accident, you can't undo it. It drives me nuts because while trying to grab other elements like overlays and captions I keep moving the crop area instead. Aggravating. I'm still trying to figure out if it's possible to pause frames, but can't see the option which is a deal breaker for me. It looks to me the only one you can pause is the last frame. Also, there's no apparently way to ease in and ease out during sections either. gif properties was greyed out until I committed to a crop. that was confusing, but in all fairness Photoshop is basically the same in that regard. Seem to have no ability to preview a loop between a start and end point like you can do with QuickTime with "play selection only option" and command-L. Be such a simple way to preview before doing the initial render. Can't believe that's missing. It has the ability to add a custom delay to the end of the gif, that's not enough control. I need to be able to delay the gif anywhere I want to. That's a deal breaker. Also, it should follow QuickTime's lead and allow you to nudge back and forth with the arrow keys without a modifier. There's no way to remove or change speed on the individual frames AFAIK like you can with Photoshop. On the plus side, it's VERY fast, the grid option is very helpful for placing the crop area, the live resizing is fantastic, nice and quick palindrome (but not enough options for easing, etc.) the quality is great too with all the best choice for palates, but unlike Photoshop, there's no instant preview of the quality changes, so that's a bummer. Also, unlike Photoshop, no preview of image file size until you semi-render it. Regrettably, I'm still going to stil use Photoshop CS.x for most GIFs until this matures. I really wanted to love this, the price is great, it's tremendously faster to create GIFs than Photoshop, but without the ability to delay wherever you want and the other issues, I just can't use this for many GIFs. But, if you're a novice, this is a cheap way to get started. I anxiously await updates. I'd love for this to mostly replace using QuickTime and Photoshop to make GIF down the road.

Looks promising — based on about 15 minutes of testing it with — and the tweaking of — an existing animated GIF.

Used to love this little app, but it just keeps getting stuck on "determining palette" and I keep canceling it. It's faster for me to just open video in Photoshop and covert to gif from there which used to be the entire point of having GIF Brewery to save time. Bye GB, you're now buggy and useless to me. Shame.

Too bad no option to make animated gif from a folder of images, it'd be an all around little app.

Do the job and open GIF too (I know, but for a video to GIF converter it's an exception).

It was only last night—or should I say about 2 AM, since I'm on steroids that give me insomnia, along with a boost of energy that keeps me up for 2-3 days at a shot, before I crash—I upgraded to version 3 of The Print Shop, and I played around with their Circular Text tool that allows you to spin text into a circle or a spiral. Now only is that both cool and mind-boggling, but if you grab the handles of the object box which contains the circular text you just created, you can watch the text spin around and settle wherever you stop dragging the handle. I not only created a logo for my website project, but, with the aid of SnapZ Pro, I video captured the animation and saved it as a QuickTime movie. At the same time, however, I was wondering what neat utility might exist to allow me to create a GIF of that video. Here it is, apparently. While I would always prefer to have a chance to try out software, even in a slightly crippled, time-limited, production-run limited, or feature-busted format, so that I can see what it does. The Apple Store does not allow this, which is one of its biggest flaws, since it exists only as a master catalog where it stores, downloads, and collect money off the top of programs developed by people who would rather give 30% of their revenue than market their stuff on their own. Whatever! But, when I visit the developer's site for this software, I see excellent, well-illustrated tutorials at least showing me what the application does. For me, if a developer is smart enough to take the time to do a good job of showing me how to use their product, then I will give them the benefit of the doubt and try out their product. On the other hand, if a developer shows me nothing, makes no promotional video to illustrate the features and benefits of their software, they had two chances of convincing me to spend money on them: slim and none. As far as I am concerned, all software ought to have video demonstrations and documentation associated with the product. Videos to sell the software, supplemented by videos to teach me --by showing me-- how to use it. As the cartoon said: There ought to be a law! Not to do so, is a sign of ignorance on the part of the developer. Anyway I hope I like this product. Stay tuned for a further report.

Unfortunately, no trial, but there is a video that the Developer has made demonstrating its features: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1ihSt9Wklk

Very useful app ... have been waiting for some native Mac application to create animated gifs! Can we expect to get a add-text-overlay feature in a future release? Thanks!
