Convert JFIF to GIF online, for free.
JPEG File Interchange Format (JFIF) is a simple file type that facilitates the exchange of JPEG images. The JFIF standard includes JPG, JPEG, JPE, JIF, and JFI. In essence, you can rename a JFIF to any of these file types and the file’s compression and structure will remain the same.
The default program for opening JFIF is XnView MP, which is free and works across platforms. On Microsoft Windows (Windows), open JFIF with any of the following programs: Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Media Encoder, Nero Multimedia Suite, or PhotoFiltre Studio.
Even though JFIF is considered to be a minimal file format, it is important to remember that files with this extension are indistinguishable from JPG. The only difference is the spelling of the file extension. Sometimes, Windows 10 will save a JPG file as a JFIF by default. Instructions for changing this are available here.

Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) is a type of bitmap file format that relies on pixels to form simple images using the RGB color model. Unlike the uncompressed BMP file format, GIF uses lossless compression and supports animation without audio. The most common use of GIF is in animated form as advertisements, emotion-based replies on social media, and memes, which often go viral on the Internet.
Almost all web browsers support GIF, which gives it a distinct advantage over other image formats, such as PNG. Furthermore, GIF opens on Apple’s mobile devices, including iPhone and iPad, which makes it more popular than Adobe Flash.
GIFs open easily on almost all image-viewer applications, web browsers, and operating systems. To open a GIF for the purposes of editing it, use an application such as Adobe Photoshop. On Windows, open GIFs with Microsoft Photos, Adobe Photoshop Elements, Roxio Creator NXT Pro, and others. On macOS, use Adobe image viewers and editors, including Adobe Illustrator.
