Hi,
I was wondering if someone could tell me the best and easiest way to make a gif from video.

Cheers
Gabe

I presume you mean an animated GIF.

The freeware video editor Avidemux allows you to save video clips as a string of  still images (either JPEG or Bitmapped).

You can then use a separate program to convert your selected images to an animated GIF.

I normally use Adobe Photo-Paint to convert  stills to animated GIFs, as it allows lots of tricks to cut down the file size.

However, there are numerous freeware packages available that can also do this, with varying degrees of efficiency.

if you GOOGLE    animated gif maker freeware    you'll turn up lots of them, but I've never used any recent ones.

However I used to have a freeware package about 10 years ago that produced pretty good results; I would imagine things have moved on from there.

Be warned: use as few frames per second as is possible, otherwise your files will be gigantic :lol:

That is another option, but you'll find it's better to edit your own set of stills and then get those converted, as you can drastically reduce the file size that way.
