Google Slides and CloudApp, when used in tandem, will allow you to easily create engaging visual presentations that your audience will be excited to watch.

Enhance Your Google Slides With GIFs

 If you’re not familiar with the media type, a GIF is a series of images or soundless video clips set to loop. GIFs are a popular and engaging visual content type that can be used to entertain and/or educate audiences.

CloudApp makes it easy to create GIFs. You simply access the tool, select the area of your computer screen that you want to capture, and then hit the record button. The resulting footage will automatically be created in GIF format and uploaded to your personal CloudApp library for safe keeping.
