GIF is a widely used image format which supports displaying animations. Its name is synonymous with short, silent, looping videos. However, due to limitations in the design of the GIF format, the animations cannot be very long or have lots of colors, without the file size becoming extremely large.

To make GIFs smaller in size without reducing quality, you can convert it to a newer, more efficient image format like WebP - which also supports looping animations. Alternatively, you can convert the GIF to a video.
