Creating Gifs: Level Japanese Photographer [Pic]. Can anyone answer this question: How do you pronounce .gif? With a G or a J? I`ve heard both, but a J sounds wrong.

For what it's worth, I used to work in the computer graphics industry (my boss there was a member of the Joint Photographic Experts Group). As we understood it, there is no specified way for it to be pronounced, but everyone pronounced it with a hard G to prevent confusion with JIF (JPEG Interchange Format).

The "GIF Pronunciation Page" that auntiemeg32 links to points out that the Graphics File Formats FAQ states, "The pronunciation of "GIF" is specified in the GIF specification," however that is *false*. (GIF87, GIF89A)

It may have originated as "jif", but the pronunciation has drifted to "gif".

(Also, Gerry1of1 sussed out the cheat used here.)

Looking at the picture the word 'Minj` comes into vision...

I thought it was with a G sound. Jif makes me think of peanut butter. Not that there's anything wrong with peanut butter, I love it, personally.
