GIF stands for "Graphics Interchange Format".  GIFs are a picture format that is widely used on the web for images, and have the file extension ".gif".

The format supports up to 8 bits per pixel thus allowing a single image to reference a palette of up to 256 distinct colors. The colors are chosen from the 24-bit RGB color space. It also supports animations and allows a separate palette of 256 colors for each frame. The color limitation makes the GIF format unsuitable for reproducing color photographs and other images with continuous color, but it is well-suited for simpler images such as graphics or logos with solid areas of color.

Photo.gif... That's wat it means

GIF stands for a photo or a picture what ever you want to call it.

It's kinda like milk where it means girl I'd f*ck. But it's also the name of memes that just make fun of stuff.


I would go with the latter answer as well as the 1st.
