I had never heard it pronounced "Gif" until last week on Jimmy Fallon. I have always pronounced it with a soft G... at least in my head. Come to think of it, it doesn't come up in conversation often at all so I can't really think of a time I've even said it out loud.

Pronouncing it with a hard G makes more sense, since the G stands for Graphics, a word beginning with a hard G sound. But saying "Gif" out loud just feels wrong.

It's jiff, like the peanut butter. Anyone who says otherwise, is wrong.

I didn't know I was pronouncing Ibiza incorrectly, until I watched The Dark Knight Rises.

The g stands for graphics, so that determines it. Jif is certainly wrong. No one gets to decide, the first words pronunciation took care of it.

With that theory JPEG would be pronounced jay-feg instead of jay-peg. Because the P stands for photographic.

Nope. The h is required with the p to make the f sound, and its not in the acronym. The G however, is only determined by the sound of the word. Don't you know the rules here???

Gif is more well known. Save myself the time explaining, and informing someone what I mean.
