What is a GIF?
GIF stands for Graphics Interchange Format, and was developed in 1987 as a moving image. These can be used in many ways, from humorous moving pictures to quick looping clips from movies and shows to branded animated GIFs you can use in marketing. Use these to share memes, stickers, slideshows and more.
