    I can’t help you with an explanation on how to do it in Photoshop but if it’s urgent I can do this for you in Fireworks real quick. PS isn’t made for things like this and it’s really easy in FW since that’s exactly its strength.

    Send the images and instructions on what to do to vipstephan->gmail.com

    You can use the Timeline panel in Photoshop (I use CS6) to create GIF animations. Put each animation frame on its own layer, put the static content on an additional layer, modify the timelines for each layer, and Save for Web as a GIF.
    For every complex problem, there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong.

    well, I had some success with PS, tryed also with Gimp.
    It does not work. The main reason is that it seems that nither recognizes number of colors in pasted image from clipboard, hence gray becomes green, ....
    Seems PS needs to have layers in order as they will appear in gif, and only first visible, if you scramble that , good luck (-:

    Ended up with Easy Gif Animator, not without bugs, but much better than others.

    If I had to guess, indexed color is causing that issue. GIF is limited to 256 colors. GIF images are indexed to those 256 colors (or less) when saved, so, if you paste in new content that includes colors not in the index, the colors would be converted to a color in the index. You might need to de-index the color by changing the color mode to RGB first. You can do that via Image: Mode: RGB Color in Photoshop CS6.

    I just did a test and this is not true. The layer order doesn't matter, though this will make the timeline appear less organized since you'll need to play frames out of order.

    You also don't need to hide any layers if you edit the image using the Flash-like Video Timeline view of the Timeline panel where you edit the animation as if it were an ordinary video. You do need to hide layers when using the more traditional GIF editing method (Frame Animation view) though. I think the traditional method is harder to use.

    My main confusion came up when saving the animation. Photoshop saves the GIF as a static image if you use interlacing and provides no warning that this will happen. You'll also need to save the image using the Save for Web dialog because this is where the frame looping options are set.

    I uploaded an example image with the corresponding PSD file so you can see the out-of-order layers and Timeline setup:
