Save Optimized As saves animation as jpg not gif

Save Optimized As saves animation as jpg not gif

I created a simple 4 frame animation in Image Ready 7.  I selected "gif" & "optimize to file size" from the Optimize palette.  I choose "optimize Animation" from the Animation palette menu. I choose File - Save Optimized As & seleted "images only".  It appends jpg as the file extension instead of gif.  Any ideas on what I'm doing incorrectly or missing?  The animation does work in Preview in Browser.  
ANY HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED, I'm out of ideas on this one.

RE: Save Optimized As saves animation as jpg not gif

Before anyone wastes their time on this...I figured it out.  I was using  The Photoshop 6 Bible, while using V7, & things are a bit different. You don't have to save just the images 1st & then save images & html.  Just save it once using both images & html.  It will throw the gif in your folder.
