If I am understanding you, then it's simply a matter of setting the time delay for each frame.
Below, frames 1,2, and 4 are set to 1 second, and frame 3 is set to 4 seconds.
The background is turned off for all frames, so we are seeing the forum background behind the numbers.
You can have all or none of the layers turned on for a particular frame, and the timing is still; a function of the frame delay.
So this arrangement:

If that does not cover it, try and describe it in more detail if possible.
Hi, thanks for the reply.
I probably haven't explained it clearly, sorry.
Using your example, what I want to happen is have 1 tween into 2. Then I want 2 to remain while 3 tweens into 4 and 2 and 4 remain. But what is happening is that each frame disappears before the next one appears.
I have tried checking and un-checking Redundant Pixel Removal and toggling between Do Not Dispose and Auto.
As it turns out, the disposal was working correclty once exported to gif. It just wasn't appearing when previewing in Photoshop.

Frame timings tend not to be spot on in the Timeline because Photoshop has too much too process and can't honour short frame times, but it should still be reasonable. I am glad you have got there though. IME Frame Animations are not an intuitive process to understand, and there is precious little written about it either.
