Well a gif is a 'pic file' see http://gimpforums.com/thread-pros-and-co...ge-formats

Do you mean a .gif animation?

I think, individual images in png format, but since an animation consists of layers you need to do all your editing and saving as a Gimp xcf file. Only at the very end export to an animated .gif
