GIF Image Format GIF Converter
GIF stands for Graphical Interchange Format. Although traditionally still images, GIFs can also include short bursts of soundless animation. They will open in almost all image programs and on almost all devices. GIFs are raster images made up of pixels and containing up to 256 colours. To make GIFs easier to share, the image or animation is compressed with lossless compression, creating a smaller file size without noticeably affecting image quality. GIFs are often used on websites for animated objects and navigation buttons, and on social media to share video clips and animated images.
GIFs were developed in 1987. They were mostly replaced by JPG and PNG until they were integrated into messaging and social media apps and started being used for memes. Billions of animated GIFs are now sent between users or posted online every day. GIFs are big business and they’re widely used by advertisers and marketeers. Many film and TV companies produce and publish their own GIFs as part of their viral marketing strategies.
THUMBNAIL Image Format
The GIF gets its name from the fact it is an image file saved in the Graphical Interchange Format. The GIF has been around for 30 years and its history is legendary - it has gone from the brink of obsolescence to widespread use thanks largely to the advent of social media and Internet meme culture. The original intended use of the format was quite different to its use today. Created in 1987 by CompuServe and developer Steve Wilhite it was designed to save precious memory whilst providing a convenient container to display images. In the early '90s GIF's were replace by the new JPG and PNG formats, which offered sharper image resolution and more efficient image encoding. However in recent years the GIF has enjoyed something of a renaissance as it offered a widely supported and easy to use method for creating short animated clip (or "memes"). Websites such as Giphy and Tenor built on the back of this trend, and Twitter and Facebook also offered native support for the format.
