Graphics Interchange Format

   Abbreviated GIF; pronounced "[gif]." A graphics file format, originating on CompuServe, that results in relatively small graphics files.
   An image may contain as many as 256 colors, including a transparent color, and a lossless compression method reduces the size of the file. A graphic in this format can be used as an inline image on a Web page.
   A revision of this format, known as GIF89a, adds animation features, transparent backgrounds, and image interleaving.
