Animated Gif?
Sometimes when I create an animated gif with say 2 frames or more one of the frames comes out messed up like it has a lower number of colors but other frames come out fine.

If I export a single frame as a gif it looks fine.

RE: Animated Gif?
So do you know which program for a mac would support 256 colors per frame?

Try the various animation optimizers under "Filters > Animation"
-optimize(difference)...
-optimize(gif)...

*OR*
If you have been using these already, try just exporting to an animated Gif (unoptimized), and see if it looks better, the file size may go up some, but it should look nicer.

hmm...let me look it up
Edit: Ok, I found mostly online converters that look promising (good quality results)

There are a few downloadable free programs *BUT* : read the reviews first to make sure there's no adware/malware/junk...
