I'm trying to make animated gifs with PhotoShop CS3, and there's a problem bothers me a lot. After loading my screencaps on my PS, I find that the images are in reverse order on my layer palette.

Although I've gone through the tags and memories, I can't find any solutions for this problem. I really hope someone here can tell me what to do.

Thanks!

Issues with file sizes and colouring

I am having an issue with file sizing and colouring when saving images, and am wondering if maybe someone can help me.

RE: the colouring issue. I always save my icons and graphics as .png and always go to "save for web and devices" to save them. The images always lose some of their vibrancy, though, and look a little muted and dull. Does anyone know why this happens? Is there a way to rectify this problem?

RE: sizing animated icons/images. When I make animated icons for LJ, I optimise to fit 40K before saving, again through "save for web and devices", and they appear as 40K or under on my hard drive. But when I upload them to photobucket, they increase in size to 45K, sometimes even 50K. Does anyone know why this is, and is there a way to fix this issue?

I am using PS CS4 Extended. I used to use Photoshop CS before I got my mac and never had these problems.
