The GIF format, which is also known as Graphics Interchange Format, is one of the most popular formats for publishing web graphics, especially on social media and instant messaging (meme, emotes, reaction gifs, and ads). It owes its success to its ability to convey information through animated images, while keeping file size to minimum.
