I have elements too. I can still animate gifs on it.
You make each layer a frame of the Gif you want to animate, and when you are done you save it like: File> Save for Web> and a window pops up, and in the bottom-ish right side you see a box that says Animation, and you check the box and fiddle with the options, depending on if you want it to loop and how fast you want it to go.
