For images, use the add new layer button with each change in animation.
Continue to add frames to your Timeline by switching layers on and off in your layers pallet (File > Layers) then clicking add new frame

Set your repeat: forever, 3 times or once.
Save out your gif. File (top bar) > Save for Web > GIF
Above is the basic animation from a few layers and a reverse frame animation.
