Happy Birthday to the GIF

Example animated gif
I saw on Mashable this morning, while doing a little web surfing and having my coffee, that today the GIF format turns 26. As a company that has several popular file format converters, how I could I not also pay homage to this infamous format too?

For those of you who are interested, you can read the article on Mashable about the life and history of the GIF format,—lovingly nicknamed "Great Internet Fun" by the contributor in place of the more proper "Graphics Interchange Format"—and its early life of controversy. But, for many it is probably enough to think of a few of your favorite, and often humorous, animated clips brought to you by the GIF to put a smile on your face, and what better commemoration could there be? Of course you could also share some of those those favorites today to continue the birthday celebration.

And if you are looking to make your own animated gifs, you may want to check out our post on converting video clips into animated gifs with a little help from Prism video converter.
