With version 4, you can export animations directly:

anim1 = Table[
Plot[Exp[-(x - i/3)^2], {x, 0, 10},
PlotRange -> {0, 1}], {i, 1, 15}];

Export["anim_1_loop.gif", anim1, ConversionOptions
-> {"Loop" -> True}];

See the on-line help for ConversionOptions specific to GIF images. It's a
little hard to find, but follow the help browser path to additional
information section in Built-In Functions: Export: Additional Information.

I also use a package called Animagic, which allows me to modify the GIF
images more easily (to reorder, optimize, adjust the transparency etc.).
There is a free demo version at
