GIF files are having the lowest color depth. That is 8 bits per pixel.

‘Bits per pixel’ or the color depth or bit depth represents the number of bits used for color of a single pixel in a bitmapped image. Bit per pixel is commonly known as bpp to specify the number of bits used.

Form the color depth you can have an idea of how finely levels of colors can be represented. Color depth is only one aspect of the color representation. If an image is 24-bit image, it is having a true color image and number of different colors can represent it. If it is a 32-bit image, it carries additional color pane in CMYK files.

Gif image or 8-bit image represents 256 colors.

Thanks.

“Bits per pixel” is a measure of color depth, or the number of distinct colors a format can store. GIF is the format with the lowest color depth.

As GIF files have only 8 bits per pixel, it means that only 256 distinct colors can be represented in this format.
