They are so wide-spread that one can find gif animations on every site on various topics, different forums, social networks etc. Sometimes people are using animations for their personal entertainment, for example they are sending animations to each other while chatting on social networks. Animated images are often the embodiment of humoristic elements. Sometimes they can help during the studying, for example they can depict the sequence of the movement while using software, or playing a musical instrument.

And making cartoons is truly a fun pastime, no doubt about it.
In point of fact it is simply a file, that consists of several images, that are moving one after the other. The concept of gif animation is very close to the roots of animation. Way before the first films were created, animation already existed, and it gave the possibility to create animated images. It can be created, by a well-known method from childhood, of drawing in the corners of our notebook. And then when you were flipping the pages quickly these pictures that were drawn with a little difference were coming to life. The smaller a difference between each picture is the slower will be the movement of animated images. So this is the core of every modern document in a standard gif format. Thanks to this we can even create a cartoon.
The word animation originates from the French «animation» - revival, reduction. The name itself embodies the desire to add movement and dynamics to static objects. The term «animation» is often mistaken for multiplication. But actually they have some significant differences. Animation was created way before cinematography, and it usually had some music accompaniment. Soon the artists all over the world were fascinated by the idea of making cartoons. The very first animated character was cat named Filex, but his fame did not last. Very soon he was replaced by well-known and beloved Mickey Mouse and this amusing animations was forgotten. The most famous animation to this days is still the legendary hedgehog from the cartoon «Hedgehog in the Fog».
Animation tightly cooperates with cinematography. The difference between these two spheres is enormous. Cinematograph deals with real actors and objects, shooting their movements with camera. Animation on the other hands uses inanimate objects, such as cartoon characters or plasticine`s dolls. The combination of the first and second gives the possibility to create a realistic depiction of completely imaginative things. How to make an animation more realistic? Set the smallest change of a great number of frames, and due to smoothness the effect that your dragon is flying or a person is clapping his hands will be created.

What is the main difference between video and gif animation? The first differs in a huge size, and, as it follows, can overload the page and causes problems with playback.
