A GIF89a file that contains multiple images and that can be viewed as an animated sequence of images in a web browser. Animated GIFs are widely used on the web because they are relatively small and do not require a plug-in for the web browser.
This is an image that appears to change or move on your screen. It is made up of two or more frames which are shown in succession.
An animated GIF or an animation is just that: an animated cartoon that brings life to projects such as Web pages and greeting cards. It is called a GIF because it uses the GIF file format. Hemera® provides thousands of animated GIF images in The Big Box of Art® collections.
A GIF animation tool that creates sequences of images to simulate animation and allows for transparent background colors. Animated GIFs can generate higher response rates than static banners.
GIF is a bitmap file format often used on the Web. GIF (which may be correctly pronounced as either "gif" with a hard "g" or "jiff") stands for Graphic Interchange Format. Because it applies data compression, GIF is often used for photographic images. An animated GIF combines several images into a single GIF file. Applications that support the animated GIF standard (GIF89A) cycle through the images, creating the impression of motion. The animated GIF format does not provide as much control and flexibility as other animation formats but, because it is supported by nearly every Web browser, has become very popular.
An animation created by combining multiple GIF images in one file. The result is multiple images, displayed one after another, that give the appearance of movement. Research indicates that animated banners are more effective than static banners, generating higher ad awareness and recall, and click-through.
An animated GIF is a web-based graphic which creates an illusion of motion. It consists of a series of images in GIF format that are displayed in sequence - much like a flip-book.
This is an image in GIF format that moves. It can present an endless sequence of images, or it can present the sequence once and then stop.
An animated GIF is one of the simplest forms of Web page animation. Most banners you see on Web pages are animated GIFs. The GIF89a format of saving graphics allows you to save several images at once and are displayed by Web browsers one after another, creating the illusion of movement. There are freeware and shareware animated GIF builders available for download.
A special type of GIF file. They give the impression of a video. A collection of GIFS presented one after the other each picture slightly different from the previous.
a graphic in the GIF89a file format that creates the effect of animation by rotating through a series of static images.
A very basic animated image, used primarily in web design. Animated GIFs consist of a set of GIF images placed in sequence.
A Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) file capable of storing multiple images, creating the illusion of motion when displayed sequentially.
A GIF (Graphic Interchange Format) file containing a motion sequence.
GIF is a bitmap file format often used on the World Wide Web. An animated GIF is a series of individual GIF frames joined together to create an animation. It is perhaps the easiest way to create and view simple animations.

A graphics files in gif format which contains several frames which when viewed using a web browser shows the frames to produce animation.
A moving GIF image on a Web page, created by combining several images into a single GIF file. An animated GIF can loop endlessly or it can display a few images and then stop the animation.
Animated GIFs are a simple way of introducing movement into a web page. These graphics files are often used as a way of attracting attention to a particular part of a web page.
From a publisherâ€(tm)s perspective, no different than an ordinary GIF. However, from an Advertiserâ€(tm)s perspective, the difference couldnâ€(tm)t be bigger. Animation allows you to attract attention and tell a story over several â€œframesâ€ (think of the frames of a comic strip, shown in quick succession).
A group of GIF images stored in a special animated GIF file that is inserted in a Web page; the individual images are displayed one after another to simulate movement.
This is a group of images that are put together to give the appearance of a moving picture.
Animated Graphics Interchange Format, an early internet standard animation format using a maximum of 256 colours. Suitable for simple graphics, but not photographs. One it's most useful attributes is the ability to set one or more of the colours as transparent, thus blending an image into a background page.
This is a form of GIF that allows you to combine several images into one file. The animation occurs by displaying each image in the animated GIF for a set amount of time.
A picture file that creates the effect of movement, or animation, when displayed in a Web browser or PowerPoint presentation. You can create animated GIFs in PhotoDraw using the Animated GIF command on the Web Effects menu.
A type of animation that uses multiple GIF picture files in rapid succession to simulate movement. Unlike Java, Dynamic HTML, or Shockwave, creating animated GIFs does not require high-level programming or design skills. Some examples of animated GIFs are moving logos and bouncing balls on a Web site.
Set of pictures saved in one GIF-compressed document. When the document is opened, the pictures are shown in a predetermined sequence and speed.
An animated gif is a graphic that is made up of multiple images in a timed sequence. This gives the effect of motion.
A type of GIF image that can be animated by putting several images together in a single file. When the images are viewed, they cycle through the combined images. This gives the illusion of motion, or animation. Animated GIF format is by most Web browsers.
A graphical web format that allows a series of static images to be displayed one after another other, giving the effect of motion or animation. These were novel in the mid 90's, but are now one of the hallmarks of unprofessional web design.[Go Back
An image that moves like a cartoon on your computer screen
an image file that appears to move by combining several gif images into one gif file
or Animation - A graphic file which consists of two or more images shown in a timed sequence to give the effect of motion.
A graphics interchange format (GIF) file, consisting of images shown in a timed sequence in order to give the effect of motion.
An image that is actually a series of images shown one after another to simulate animation.
An animated GIF uses the GIF89a format of saving several images and then sequentially displaying them via Web browsers, creating the illusion of movement.
Animated GIFs are the simplest form of animation and are supported natively by most browsers. Looping and minimal timing information can be set in an animated GIF, but complex animation is beyond this format's capabilities.
An animated GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) file is a graphic image on a Web page that moves - for example, a twirling icon or a banner with a hand that waves or letters that magically get larger. In particular, an animated GIF is a file in the Graphics Interchange Format specified as GIF89a that contains within the single file a set of images that are presented in a specified order. An animated GIF can loop endlessly (and it appears as though your document never finishes arriving) or it can present one or a few sequences and then stop the animation.
A type of GIF image that can be animated by combining several images into a single GIF file. GIF animation doesn't give the same level of control and flexibility as other animation formats but it has become extremely popular because it is supported by nearly all Web browsers. In addition, animated GIF files tend to be quite a bit smaller that other animation files, such as Java applets
Graphic in GIF format that mimics animation by rotating through a series of static images.
A file containing a series of GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) images that are displayed in rapid sequence by some Web browsers, giving an animated effect.
a series of GIF images that are quickly changed to create simple animation.
n. A series of GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) images that are displayed in rapid sequence by some Web browsers, giving an animated effect. See also GIF.
An animation composed of a series of GIF images. Not usually considered the best way to add motion to a Web site, especially since the popularization of technologies like Flash and Shockwave.
A feature of the GIF89a (Graphics Interchange Format) file format containing two or more images that simulates motion/animation when viewed in a browser. The motion/animation can repeat continuously or play only once.
The GIF 89a standard allows for the creation of multiple flat images within one file, to be displayed consecutively. Intervals between successive images are programmable, as is transparency and looping. The successive images provide a simple cell animation effect.
a series of images programmed to show movement or animation
As GIF but these images can contain multiple layered images which can be revealed in succession to produce an animation effect. Banner Ads are typically Animated GIFs
The Graphic Interchange Format (.gif files), developed by CompuServe Inc., is a bitmap-based format designed for use on the World Wide Web. It is highly compressed to minimize file transfer time and supports images with 256 colors or fewer. The GIF format provides the ability to store multiple bitmaps in a file. When the multiple images are displayed in rapid succession, the file is called an animated .gif file.
A special type of Graphical Interchange Format (GIF) file that works on the same principle as a cartoon. A number of images, each subtly different to the preceding image, are shown at speed and in sequence to give the impression of movement.
A file containing a series of GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) graphics that are displayed in rapid sequence in a Web browser, giving the appearance of a moving picture. See also GIF.
A small animation based on successively displayed GIF images.
A GIF format which adds movement to banner ads by allowing a series of images to be displayed on top of each other or one after another.
An Animated GIF allows a timed image sequence to display. Consists of two or more images shown in a timed sequence, for a motion effect. Flash is today's preferred method.
An animation that is created by combining multiple GIF images in one file, resulting in the appearance of movement. Animated ads conceivably allow you more ad space to get your message across.
A graphic consisting of multiple GIF layers saved as a ~Sstack.~T When a browser displays this stack, images present quickly one after the other, achieving an animated effect in much the same way as old flip-card movies.
An animation created by combining multiple GIF images into one file using special graphic software. The result is multiple images, displayed one after another that give the appearance of movement. The animation is usually run in continuous loop so that it will keep playing indefinitely. Some tutorials on how to create animated GIF includes: Creating an Animated GIF Using Macromedia Fireworks Creating Animated GIFs in Photoshop 7 and ImageReady
An image made up of a number of frames that create a simple animation. Each frame in an animated .gif can be made from any image type, e.g. .bmp, .jpeg, .gif, but the final file must be saved as a .gif in order to animate it. The file size of animated .gifs can be very small so are suitable for web pages.
A graphic image in GIF (graphical interchange format) format composed of multiple layers which display in turn, providing the illusion of motion. A large percentage of non rich-media banner ads are in animated GIF format. Animated GIF banners have historically generated higher click-through rates than static images. However, as web users have grown more mature, some studies indicate that blinking or flashing images are more often automatically ignored, as users have come to assume that any animated image on a page is an advertisement.
A simple animation which includes series of GIF images that are displayed in rapid succession.
An animated graphic exploiting looping and timing features in the GIF89a format.
An animation created by combining multiple GIF images into one file. The result is multiple images, displayed one after another which give the appearance of movement. Animated GIFs are very useful for attracting or distracting Web surfers.
A method of simple, limited animation. A sequence of images are stored in a single image file in the GIF format.
Data format for animated graphics in the Internet.
