Could anyone offer advice on GIF creation software for creating Knowledge Base content?
Hi Tony! If you're looking for a quick and easy way you can always use Microsoft Powerpoint. You would create "slides" like normal but make sure to use animation to transition your slides and set your "presentation" as "loop". Once you're done save it as a .GIF.
Here's a more detailed article: https://blog-insider.office.com/2019/12/30/create-animated-gifs-using-powerpoint/
Hope this helps!
SnagIt works really well!
I second the recommendation for SnagIt.
Another +1 for Snagit.
If it is a simple GIF, then Giphy.com or screentogif are good. I believe screentogif is free and opensource.
