TIL: Better bug reporting with GIFs

1 min read.

Today I learned the effect of using gifs when creating bug reports or really, to explain anything.

I recently needed a tool for doing quick screen captures and ended up using a tool called Droplr. At the same time I noticed that you could generate gifs from your screen captures with as much ease.

I’ve found that it’s almost always easier to show how to create a bug than to write about it. And it usually takes a lot of time to write a good bug report.

So use gifs to get your point across!
