Restore the ability to open animated gifs as layers in photoshop elements on windows.
In all previous versions of photoshop elements on windows you could create an animated gif and then reopen the animated into photoshop elements with the layers intact, but in elements 9 you just get the dreaded message and a flattened gif.
