The inventor of the GIF says that it should be pronounced 'JIF'

Oxford English Dictionary says tough titties and it's not his choice. ¬_¬

I say gif, because, you know, its written down as gif.

It's like how I call gifts, gifts and not jifts. And I'll say ground as ground and jround. Guess I'm just a bit weird like that ¬_¬

But when those gifts are really big, they can be described as gigantic.

While I've never heard anyone call the format jif, this is English, the language of taking whatever sounds good from whatever sources. Phonetic pronounciations are for the weak.
