The GIF format was first released in 1987, and its latest update was in 1989... 31 years ago and counting. Its awesomeness remains at a cool 8 bits per pixel of pure raw power. The possibilities? Endless. The skills needed? Innumerable. The stories to be told? Millions, all small and crunchy. Still, one only needs the most basic of principles to create something stunningly simple, beautiful and fun. So... Let’s make GIFs like cavemen! Using the simplest of means and needing no more than a good idea or two. Caveman GIFs: like smashing two stones together for a pixely fire.
