Color loss when pasting (pic inside)

First time posting and i just have a very quick question that i'm hoping someone could clear up. Smile

When i'm attempting to paste an image from one window to another, i'm losing an incredible amount of colors in the transfer.

The target image is a gif (of the animated variety) while the copied image is a png (although i've also tried w/ bmp's). You can check out the attachment to see what i mean.

I guess my question is primarily "whats causing this?" w/ a secondary "is there a work around?"
