What's GIF? GIF Animation or Slideshow?
GIF, one of the most widely used image formats, stands for Graphics Interchange Format. It has efficient compression to deliver smaller file size for sharing over internet. It also supports transparent background so that you can see through the area of GIF image rather than blocking by an annoyed background. But GIF only support 256 colors. That's why you will get a poor quality of GIF file when converting other format to GIF.
GIF is the only images format that suports animation which displays different images one after another in the specified time. This is similar to the concept of slideshow. But GIF animation is only a simple (if it's) slideshow without transition effects and with fast speed.
