I’m new to creating gifs — but we’ve started to incorporate them into our help docs.
What are other ways that you have utilized gifs? Any favorite tools that you use?
I use GHIPY! It’s a favorite tool of the Mixpanel docs team. My favorite part of GHIPY is that it’s really easy to edit the length of the GIF, so you can cut out any pauses at the beginning or end.
Using GIFs to explain a process where the user has to type multiple things in, or do any series of clicks is super helpful. Like this GIF, instead of taking a series of 3-4 screenshots I was able to give the user a more realistic view of what using Mixpanel actually looks like.
