GIF is the acronym of “Graphics Interchange Format”. This bitmap image format was developed by CompuServe back in 1987. It’s a popular image format on the Internet for its wide support base and portability.

The file format supports up to 8 bits per pixel in images which allows 256 different colors from the 24-bit RGB color space to be used in a single image. Previously it was often used for transparent pictures, but has in recent years been replaced by PNG and WebP formats.
