Git is a free and open-source distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects. Github is a highly used software that is used for version control. It is more helpful when more than one person is working on a project. GIF as we all know stands for Graphics Interchange Format is a bitmap image format. This format supports 8 bits per pixel.
