GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) is a form of bitmap image developed by CompuServe in 1987. Typically, GIFs use a lossless data compression technique for a reduced file size without sacrificing the image quality. GIFs are generally used to save low-resolution video clips and small animations for streaming over the internet.
JPG, sometimes called JPEG, is a standard image format developed by the Joint Photographic Experts Group. JPG uses a high degree of lossy compression to give it a small file size while sacrificing the overall image quality. It can achieve up to an impressive 10:1 compression algorithm. Today, it’s the most widely used image format, thanks to its seamless compatibility with the World Wide Web and most image viewing and editing apps.
