GIF

noun; acronym [Graphics Interchange Format]
GIFs are image files that are compressed to reduce transfer time. They can also use multiple images for animated effects (animated GIFs), but have no sound. The proper pronunciation of the acronym is a soft "g" sound: like JIF. The creators of the format, Bob Berry & Steve Wilhite, claim that this soft "g" sound is used. At some point one of them said, "Choosy programmers choose GIF," a play on the peanut butter commercials where "Choosy moms choose Jif." It can also use multiple images for animated effects (animated GIFs).
 
I'm using a GIF because it's just faster to up/download.
Etymology : acronym from Graphics Interchange Format.
