I pronounce each letter of the acronym. G-I-F.
Same with .png. P-N-G.
.Jpg's I pronounce "Jay-Peg".

Often times the officials and creators of something are just plain wrong.
I never call them pings. Just (P N G) files. I feel there's no way to say it other than to abbreviate it.

It's weird this thing blew up. I've never pronounced it (GIF). I've always pronounced it (JIF), and I don't ever remember anyone pronouncing is otherwise. No matter what, I'll just pronounce it how I'm use to pronouncing it, and as it turns out I pronounced it correctly all along anyways.

And for .JPG I just say (Jay-Peg) or Dot J P G just like I believe everyone else.
