Help with animated gif in CS4

Hey everyone,

I know I'm new however I joined because I have a big problem...However, first I kinda have to describe my project...

Last Month I hit an Anime convention called "Anime-Expo" (or AX for those in the know ) Anyways. I did a little lipsync on stage to Green Day's "Know Your Enemy" and it was a bit boring. So for my next one at Anime Los Angeles (ALA) I plan to do "The Static Age" also by Green Day.

I watched the video playback of my preformance and noticed it needed a bigger "Green Day" feel, so I decided to make a 4 min animated gif montage similar to what is seen during the Green Day live show.

Now, I managed to make static move inside the eyes of a gas mask stencil

Anyways, I saved that as a .psd, that way I could edit the eyes to put in whatever. So I put in the first frame changes to the eyes and it worked fine, yet when I cloned the first frame and changed it a bit for the second frame, the first one changed too! How do I stop this from happening? This is sorta time sensitive as I'm only using the Trial version of CS4 Essencials, and have 29 days left.

Thanks in Advance
-Steven Samuels

Uncheck the propagate checkbox in the layers panel.
