Expecting it to be anything other than "jif" makes you not just a dumbass but an incorrect dumbass.

The proper pronunciation, without any doubt, is "jif." All you brilliant thinkers shouting the old "The G stands for Graphic!" argument are simply wrong. You're thinking of the name of the FORMAT, not the resulting IMAGE. Does anyone EVER refer to the digitized picture as a "Graphics Interchange Format?" Of course not! GIF (though derived from the acronym) is a word in it`s own right, the pronunciation of "graphic" is immaterial.

When the format was created, the name GIF was always read as "gee-eye-eff" (a bit cumbersome, no?). When you say "G-I-F" enough it kinda naturally gets shortened to "jif". The "G" in GIF does not mean "graphic" but is actually the letter "G" thus "jif" (as in Gee) is the proper pronunciation.

Pronouncing it with a J sound just makes you sound like a dumbass. So.

Oh Ollie, you never disappoint!

"he can't tell ME how to pronounce it"

Has anyone EVER been able to tell you ANYTHING? You have to be one of the most close-minded people I`ve ever had the pleasure of loathing!

Ironically, that phrase almost always comes to mind when reading your consistently derisive and offensive postings.
