A bunch of you have asked how to create GIFs. Here's a short post explaining how to make them:

Up until now I've been using LiceCap (http://www.cockos.com/licecap/) , but Quicktime seems much more legit. Thanks Jorn van Dijk

Alternatively, if you don't have (or don't fancy using) Photoshop, you can use GIF Brewery, either the AppStore version at http://appstore.com/mac/gifbrewery (probably the best 4,49€ you'll spend this week) or the 3.0 beta: http://www.helloresolven.com/betas/gifbrewery/

I've tried GIF Brewery extensively on my Mac but find it unstable and blows up a processor or 2 along the way every time I ask it to render a GIF. Works well for you?

Something I find that helps a ton with getting GIFs to a manageable size is to adjust the frame rate in the timeline down to around 12. It sounds really low, but it still looks smooth and will reduce your file size by ~50%.

Jorn van Dijk: the beta worked fine for me, but maybe I'm not encoding anything too hardcore. As always, YMMV, 2cents, caveat emptor, lorem ipsum : )

My problem is making gif's that are the right dimensions for Dribbble!
