GIF Brewery is a Mac OS X app that converts clips from your video files to GIFs. There is no more need extracting frames from your movies and fiddling with Adobe Photoshop (tm). Let GIF Brewery do all the hard work for you.

  • Convert clips from your videos into small GIF files.
  • Resize or crop the video for your GIF.
  • Add captions or overlay images to the GIF.
  • Create GIFs with your desired FPS or manually set the frame count and frame delay.
  • Change the looping direction, such as normal playback, reverse, or even palindrome!
  • Change the number of loops for your GIF.
  • Apply Core Image filters like Sepia or Color Correction.
  • Save your settings for later edits!
  • Supports 10.6 Snow Leopard, 10.7 Lion, 10.8 Mountain Lion.
  • Makes your hip on Tumblr, assuming your GIFs are smaller than 1MB.

    Technical Notes:
  • GIF Brewery will not alter the original file and settings just impact the GIF.
  • GIF Brewery can only open and create clips from movies that Quicktime can open and play. Apple provides a list of the file formats and codecs at
  • Note, however, that GIF Brewery cannot open any DRM-protected files.
  • If you are using Quicktime components, such as Perian, Flip4Mac, or 3ivx, you MUST make sure they are up-to-date and compatible with Apple's Sandbox. Out-dated components will lead to GIF Brewery crashing.

    If you are having an issue with any of the codecs listed above, please contact us!
