The Planet of GIF
What is a GIF?
DID YOU KNOW?
- The first GIF (arguably as these things often are) is “Dancing Baby,” also called “Baby Cha-Cha,”(remember Ally McBeal?!): you can see it here Burning Pixel
- GIFs compress the quality of images to 256 colours, (compare that to 16.7 million colours in a JPEG).
- There is a Twitter account devoted entirely to GIFs (no surprise there really!)
- There are some really funny takes on the GIF here on Ad Week
Here’s one I made earlier just using my iPhone:
So there you have it, there’s more to the world of GIFs than you may have realised! Have a play. Send me any you find that you have used for business – I’d love to hear how they went down with clients!
