Why can’t I see fully functioning GIFs on sites like Facebook?

Facebook, twitter and other social media sites do not have the proper hosting abilities to allow full use of gifs.

 

Is there a limit to the size GIFs can be?

Nahhhhh there is no file size limit to gifs but there is a quality limit ( allowing only 256 colors)

 

Do PDFs house vectors and bitmaps?

Hell YEAH they do!!!!!

Why do JPEGs degrade?

Everytime you edit and save a JPEG it continually compresses and compresses and compresses and compresses and compresses

until it looks terrible… 😥
