Do you like to use animated memes to express your emotion on your social network? Not only memes GIFs go viral in Internet, many blogs use GIFs as illustration so as to make the content more vivid and impressive. GIFs are suitable for sharp-edged line art with a limited number of colors, such as logos, graphics.
