Adobe HELP is so awful! And I'm so mad Adobe has so corrupted the good old, once simple animated GIF. In version CS6 was, at one point, able to PLAY "frame mode" animation of layers. Now for the life of me it will not PLAY. I do not want to create timeline video.
Cannot find HELP answer. Any reference links or solutions will be greatly appreciated.
Resorting to all sorts of convoluted attempts (such as opening a previous CS5 animated GIF) was able to make it PLAY in Photoshop CS6. Then had to File>Save for Web> HTML and Images to desktop, then dragged GIF file to site root folder to insert and play in http://www.josephdenaro.com/heads/indexmobile.html
Still furious and disgusted with Adobe for \\crapping up// simple animated GIF.
First animated GIF circa 2000 was created in Fireworks. Thereafter. Photoshop had back-end/affiliated Image Ready program to create animated GIFs. When they dropped Image Ready a couple of version back, it was under Window>ANIMATION in Phitoshop. In version CS6, its Window>TIMELINE.

TOO, tooooo simple. Why did not Adobe HELP say so.
Window>TIMELINE (also but may not be necessary Window>WorkSpace>Motion). In timeline section click arrow to choose CREATE FRAME ANIMATION, then double-click on that "Create Frame Animation" line to create a frame. This also displays the icons at bottom of Timeline to duplicate, etc. frames.
