The catchy tagline was a riff on the then-popular JIF peanut butter commercial. Today, GIFs are ubiquitous. They are widely shared and even the news is delivered with little snippets of the compressed animation. But back in , its future was unclear. CompuServe, the creators of the GIF, let their patent expire. They were then owned by AOL.

Upload image from your computer:. Please be patient, resizing may take some time, depending on file size and selected resize method. Ezgif's online image resizer will resize, crop, or flip animated gifs and other images, with the same quality and speed as professional software, without the need to buy and install anything. Useful when you need to reduce GIF size or fit the image in specific dimensions. GIF animation resizing is sometimes tricky, and you will probably have to choose between a smaller file size or image quality. Some gifs may need the "coalesce" option which removes all optimizations from frames if other methods fail and output image is flickering or has strange artifacts, but it may significantly increase file size and is very slow.

Back to Artzine. Love it or hate it although who could possibly hate GIFs?! Short for Graphics Interchange Format, the GIF was invented by Steve Wilhite 30 years ago - a simple, flexible file format for lower-resolution pictures.
The format supports up to 8 bits per pixel for each image, allowing a single image to reference its own palette of up to different colors chosen from the bit RGB color space. It also supports animations and allows a separate palette of up to colors for each frame. These palette limitations make GIF less suitable for reproducing color photographs and other images with color gradients, but it is well-suited for simpler images such as graphics or logos with solid areas of color.
