    It sounds like you are starting in RGB mode (or some other full-color mode) and the colors are being reduced to 256-color when you save as a gif. This is unavoidable as gif is a 256-color format. Before you save the animation, try changing the color mode (Image > Mode > Indexed Color). Try getting the colors correct in this mode first, then make the animation.
