Graphics Interchange Format. GIFs are image files that are compressed to reduce transfer time. The proper pronounciation of the acronym is a soft "g" sound: like JIF.
The creators of the format, Bob Berry & Steve Wilhite, claim that this soft "g" sound is used. At some point one of them said, "Choosy programmers choose GIF," a play on the peanut butter commercials where "Choosy moms choose Jif." It can also use multiple images for animated effects (animated GIFs).
I'm using a GIF because it's just faster to up/download.
Hey, the dancing Stewie animated GIF you put on your myspace is awesome.

A form of computer image that moves as an animation, because it consists of frames, like a movie with no sound.
Bring up the topic of 'How do you pronounce "GIF"?' to a group of nerds and watch them duke it out, verbally.

1. Graphics Interchange Format. GIFs are image files that are compressed to reduce transfer time. It can also use multiple images for animated effects (animated GIFs), but has no sound.

2.What all Tumblr people begin to think in at some point in their blogging experience-It's fact.
1."Did you see those sweet Doctor Who GIFs I created? The timing on the dancing monsters' moves was difficult to sync."

2."Because of Tumblr, I keep thinking of real life in GIF responses, and have no way to express them. It's such a pain."

A rum drinking animal common to the Eastern parts of Australia. Few have witnessed its drinking ability, but those who have debate whether is man or beast. When engaged in its mating activites it is often mistaken for dancing. To be treated with caution..Females are most at risk.
"Is that Gif?? wow he sure drinks like him!!"
