In this project, I learned all about GIFs and cinemagraphs! I even made a few GIFs of my own.
- Graphics Interchange Format
- Pronunciation – topic of debate
- Creator says it is “jif”
- Invented in 1987 – staple of early internet
- 2003: MySpace invented
- Purpose of GIFs:
- response to texts/emails
- to express feelings
- One moving element
- Positive feedback on Tumblr
- Tells a deeper story
- Freezing time– the photo lives forever
Here are the GIFs that I made (using the apps GIPHY and GIF Maker)!
