GIF Format

GIF, Graphics Interchange format is considered the most famous image format in the web world because of its portability and wide support with another image format; JPEG. GIF uses lossless data compression to reduce the size of the file without decreasing the quality but is only recommended to use for small graphics with limited colors due to its color constriction to 256 colors. This makes GIF less suitable for the options which contain wide colors. Therefore, it is usually not used for files with broad colors and for photographs. However, it supports animations and is considered best for simple images like graphics and logos.
