Thanks for that.I know it is quite basic but I guess I need time to learn about elements before doing it(I was lost in the layers itself!).All I wanted was to create the day photograph to dissolve after 3 seconds into the night photograph and possibly back and forth a couple of times.Maybe its not for the monday deadline !
Thanks so much anyway
It’s not possible to fade between gif images but you could sandwich two layers with a black fill layer between them as I have done in this example.
Then use the menu:
File >> Save For Web
Choose gif as the file type, select animate, and set your timing in seconds with continuous loop if required.
PS the images are different sizes so I had to re-size the daylight image to make it the same as the night image.

You have been busy Mark. Cool work.
Addendum to my post: When viewed in this forum the gif does not loop (it loops when I view it in PSE and Irfanview, but does not loop in Windows Picture Viewer). So depending where the gif ends up it may not be necessary to duplicate the nightime frame.
