    have you tried click and drag to the desk top?

    Also, what are you viewing it in after you save it?

    if you add the "play" button to the toolbar in preview, you can play animated gifs.

    Open a file in Preview so you have a window. Go to View>Customize toolbar...
    Then drag the Play icon to where ever you'd like it on the toolbar. Voila!
