GIF file information

Full NameGraphics Interchange Format
Mime Typeimage/gif

GIF files are a popular image format on the internet and are a common format used in the distribution of internet memes. GIF files have been around since the dawn of the internet and were designed to offer high-resolution image capabilities within a small file size.

Due to their ability to be used as an animation format, GIF files have become particularly popular as the format of choice for distributing internet memes. Their lack of full 24-bit color support has, however, seen the PNG format used in preference to GIF for many applications.


GIF files are particularly useful for storing animation sequences, and this is one of the main reasons for the format's popularity. In the early days of the internet, the use of GIF files to store photographic images and other web assets declined in favor of more modern formats such as JPG and PNG.

Palette and Transparency Support

The GIF format support both palettes and transparency. For palettes, it supports two sizes of palette, 16-color and 256-color, from a pool of 16.7 million colors. GIF files also support transparency; however, there is only one level of transparency as compared to the 256 levels supported by PNG files.

Compression Technology

Compression support within the GIF format is limited to the use of palettes to reduce the number of colors used within an image. This compression can be either lossy or lossless, depending on the number of colors in the original image.
