GIF Maker is a free online video to GIF converter tool provided by a very popular website, called Giphy. You can download the output GIF and also share on social networks. Unlike other GIF maker websites, which convert the full video to GIF, this tool lets you select the start time and duration for the GIF. Moreover, you can also set the privacy for your GIF file.
Apart from these features, you can add tags, source URL, and caption to your GIF. You can use all the options without signing in to your Giphy account. However, to set the privacy, you must be signed in to your account. You also need to take care of the size of the input video, which must not be greater than 100 MB and length should be under 15 minutes.
