yes, the creator of the word gif said "jif" but the first letter of the word stands for graphical (a hard G) so i pronounce it with a hard G. also, how many words begin with a G are pronounced with a J do you know?

When you have to spell another one differently, it's wrong.

Yo if the creator says it's pronounced with the "j" sound then it's pronounced with the "j" sound

I'm fine with either. Does it really matter how it's pronounced anyway? The English dictionary says both pronunciations are correct, so why do people still fight over an insignificant anagram?

Anyone who pronounces it as "jif" should be thrown down a flight of stairs.

I usually go with "jif" just to distinguish it from the word "gift". But I don't care much either way as long as I understand it when others say it. lol

I say gif, despite it being "wrong", but I don't think it should matter really.

Graphic Interchange Format.
Although one has to wonder if we'll make a format for the exchanging of giraffes. =w=

This brings up the whole ordeal of more than just GIFs, where as people are now locked into an eternal war for pronunciations of things. Like UPlay being pronounced with an Unlauted U. Who cares how its pronounced? Ubisoft is French Canadian, there's no pronouncing it right ever!

It's JIF, doesn't matter what the letters mean in it (just because Graphic is said with G, doesn't mean you say Gif). It's basic English pronunciations, you don't say GIRAFFE, you say JIRAFFE, and any other word where there's a G and after that there's an I, it makes it J. :^)

Sure, maybe the "correct" pronunciation is jif, but really who cares. It's gif.

You mean Jif like the brand of peanut butter? Kidding, kidding.

Pronounced "jif", because the creator said so.

Not convinced?

GIF, hard G. This is one of those cases where the creator is wrong about his own creation. Y'know, like Ray Bradbury insisting that Fahrenheit 451 was about the dangers of television rather than of state censorship and anti-intellectualism.

... Though I will admit that Giraffic Interchange Format is a funny idea.
