GIF, which stands for Graphics Interchange Format, is a very old image format introduced by CompuServe in 1987. Regardless of its ‘age’, GIF format is still very popular among computer users as it is supported by virtually all image viewers. For a long time, GIF used to be the preferred format for image animation.
However, time goes and users’ preferences change. Now, other formats are oftentimes used for image animation because of the following disadvantages of GIF:
вЂў it is not very well suited to handling images that have color schemes in the millions, which makes it almost impossible to accurately reproduce photographs with GIF;
вЂў GIF uses lossless compression algorithm, which results in large file sizes;
вЂў GIF lacks programmable interactivity, which makes IT specialists choose other web animation options.
