I personally pronounce it (GiFF). That being said, my female counterpart pronounces it (JiFF). Is there a correct way? Not likely, however, I'm guessing it was intended to be pronounced the first way.

it's an acronym so the correct way would be without the phonetics.

It's worse that most people don't even know what an internet meme is. Normies think that each individual picture with a caption in Impact is a meme. If I showed this image to a group of people they'll call it "the giant turtle meme" or some stupid shit like that

Well if the idiots repeat it enough it'll be a meme, even if it is just an image macro. And they'll pronounce it MEEM which ironically is a meme of sorts, i don't know if it counts if people are just doing it because they're stupid and think that's the way to pronounce it.

Brody Robinson

Gift.

That's because English is retarded. And "gif(t)" has been made an official way to pronounce it outside of US.

There's a funny story about this.
The creator of the format came up with the extension (.gif) and the pronunciation (jiff) before working out the acronym, Graphics Interchange Format.

Basically he trolled everyone and is a faggot.

With a hard B.

Matthew Anderson

Except that its an acronym, not a word, and does not have to abide by the language rules.
Even without that, jif (and gee aye eff) are the natural ways to pronounce it, everyone who pronounces it with a hard g is probably a stupid amerimutt.

everyone who pronounces it with a hard g is probably a stupid amerimutt.
Everyone I know (not Americans) pronounces it with a hard G.
The problem is that people learned the words that make up the acronym before they heard the pronunciation the creator wanted, so that used that to form the pronunciation of the acronym.

Jack Campbell

Nope, Gentoo's pronounciation is self-explanatory.
I used to pronounce Debian wrong though, pronounced it as deb ion.

Michael Sullivan

Amarifag here, me and literally everyone I know in the history of ever that has touched a computer pronounces with a soft G. Everyone who has heard the debate also thinks it's dumb.

I used to pronounce it "Dee-bee-an" so don't feel too bad. Also, still a shame about Ian. F to pay respect.

Parker Bell
Parker Bell

I usually alternate between hard g and soft g more or less each time I say it. If I'm around someone who I know pronounces it one way, I'll make sure to pronounce it the other way

I pronounce it as contemporary grammar says i should pronounce it as opposed to some illiterate code monkey: GIF as in GRAPHICS with a hard G because of the first word's pronunciation.

If i relied on illiterate code monkey dumbfucks for spelling and grammar, not only would i have 3rd world literacy, but Russians would have even more of a field day hacking and destroying code made by illiterates as if they don't have it already.
