Part 1. What Is GIF

GIF (short for Graphics Interchange) is a bitmap image format developed by a team at the bulletin board service (BBS) provider CompuServe on June 15th, 1987. It can support up to 8 bits per pixel for each image, allowing a single image to reference its own palette of up to 256 different colors from the 24-bit RGB color space. Because of these palette limitations, GIF is not suitable for reproducing color photographs and other images with color gradients, but it is appropriate for simpler images such as graphics or logos with solid areas of color. GIF images are compressed with the Lempel–Ziv–Welch (LZW) lossless data compression technique, which means GIF images can reduce the file size without degrading the visual quality.
