GIF (graphics interchange format)

GIF images display up to 256 colors. It supports animation and allows an individual palette of 256 colour for each frame. The colour limitation makes the GIF format inappropriate for reproducing colour photographs and other images with consistent color. GIF images are compressed using the LZW lossless data compression method to decrease the size of the file without corrupting the visual quality.
