What is a gif file?

Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) files are a commonly-used bitmap image format, frequently used for web graphics. GIF files are compressed using a lossless compression system, and can therefore be resized without suffering any loss of image quality. GIF files can only display up to 256 colors, so they are most typically used for small images and images that contain text, such as navigation buttons on a website. GIF files can also be animated, and animated GIFs are often used as a design element on websites.  Other examples of bitmap image files are PCX, JPEG and BMP.
