Frankly, it's still not clear to me. The guy that created the format pronounces it one way, but that's not the right way?
It wouldn't be the first time in history that the person who invented/popularized something lost control of it.

But it's easy....
  • GIF with a 'hard' G = CORRECT WAY TO PRONOUNCE THE IMAGE FORMAT ✔
  • GIF with a 'soft' G = PEANUT BUTTER 🥜

I never used GIF.

I mapped the screen memory into a FORTRAN common block by doing my own physical to virtual memory mapping and generated the animation directly...But that was the 1980s for me.

But I remember some guy making a graphical interchange format, pronounced JIF...
