How To Record Screen and Make Animated GIF on Mac OS X

You will see its icon in top bar and a green capture window along with sniper scope. You can resize this capture window by drag and drop.See I was trying to capture a YouTube into GIF animation.
Once you click on Start capture at the top side, it will start capturing the screen and this button will be replaced with a button “Stop capture” button. When you want to stop, click on “Stop Capture” button. And your animation will be saved. It will show a popup with all your recorded GIF. In this popup, you can also change the quality of GIF.
