The Long, Remarkable History of the GIF
Already more than a decade old and with roots reaching to June 15th, 1987—half a decade Inside the internet's long, doomed quest to replace its most iconic and flawed filetype.

before the World Wide Web itself—the GIF was showing its age. It offered support for a paltry 256 colors. Its animation capabilities were easily rivaled by a flipbook. It was markedly inferior to virtually every file format that had followed it. On top of that, there were the threats of litigation from parent companies and patent-holders which had been looming over GIF users for five long years before the fiery call to action. By Burn All GIFs Day, the GIF was wobbling on the precipice of destruction. Those who knew enough to care deeply about file formats and the future of the web were marching on the gates, armed with PNGs of torches and pitchforks.

And yet, somehow, here we are. Seventeen years later, the GIF not only isn't dead. It rules the web.

These Incredible Animated GIFs Are More Than 150 Years Old | WIRED
More than 150 years before Buzzfeed uploaded its first cat GIF, people were already captivated by looping animations. In those days, of course, there was no photoshop or screen grabbing, no Tumblrs and Twitter to help craft and share the perfect GIF. Rather, artists relied on optical tools—things like zoetropes, phenakistoscopes, thaumatropes and other gadgets with very strange names to bring their illustrations to life.
These pre-cinema devices used all sorts of low-tech tricks to make that happen, but despite their simpleness, optical tools are often regarded as the forefathers to the modern GIF. “We’re all interested in seeing movement,” says Richard Balzer. “It was a different time, but the same challenge: How do you make things move?”

What Was The First GIF? The Animated History of The GIF
The story of the GIF itself is one of tech lore. Today, it’s one of internet legend.

The GIF, or graphics interchange format, was introduced to the world by Compuserve in 1987. The compressed format was the ideal for performing image transfers across the slow modem connections of the time. The format also allowed for color, replacing the black-and-white run-length encoding format (RLE).

The History of GIFs
GIFs have flashed across many a webpage, flickered within millions of MySpace profiles and glittered among innumerable Tumblrs. You've spotted them in animated advertising, email signatures, web forums and social avatars. Indeed, if I had to repurpose the acronym for "GIF" it would be "Great Internet Fun."

In fact, "GIF" stands for "graphics interchange format," a mature name for an image format just coming of age in the digital space (the GIF turned 25 this year). Specifically, Steve Wilhite of Compuserve debuted the GIF in June 1987. The GIF improved on black and white image transfers with 256 colors, while still retaining a compressed format that slow modems could load easily. Using the Graphics Control Extension (GCE), the GIF achieved animation via timed delays.
