What is a GIF

A series of images are created, each slightly different from the one before, similar to the way animated cartoons are created. For example, in an animated GIF file of a cow lifting its head and mooing, the first image may have the cow’s head down with its mouth closed, while the second image will have the cow’s head up slightly from the ground and the mouth beginning to open slightly. Additional images are created showing the series of the intended movement.
