I am rather deficient in the workings of .gifs. I am, at best, a URL copy-n-paster. I know there are a few sites online that will take YouTube videos and convert them into .gifs, but is there one that works better than the rest? Or are there programs I can download that will allow me to make .gifs?

I have access to Photoshop but all I know how to do in that is the simple 'one picture after another' type of .gifs.

I'd appreciate any insight into this.
