EXACTLY. Now, I know what the creator of GIF said, but he's wrong. The acronym inherits its sounds from the sounds of the first letters of its constituent words.

So even CompuServe was pronouncing it "JIF" officially? Interesting. I sit corrected. I'm still going to call it GIFt for the afore mentioned reasons.

And your choice to do so is absolutely correct. I prefer one over the other but can accept the fact that others choose to have their images GIFt wrapped.
