Unisys owned this algorithm. Some companies need a license issued from Unisys. This kind of format is more suitable for simple and images.
There are many merits to this kind of format. There are 256 colors available in animated GIF so it is best for simple text and shape. It is a lossless compression supportable which do not degrade the quality of the image. It is also support for the transparent background. For this reason, there are many sample GIF file downloads available.
Features of GIF file format:

• It supports LZW compression which is lossless.
• There is interlacing that makes the image looks faster on screen.
• This image format is supporting different software and tools.
• The resolution of the gif image is between 72 and 90 dpi.
The GIF image format is not suitable for the vector image with a gradient background. Additionally, if there is a photographic image then this file format is not suitable. However, it is good for solid color graphics compression.
