You can do animation in the timeline. What is your end result? Animate might be a better Solution. PS is good for gif animations.

my image doesn't show up in the timeline.  How do I get my image into the timeline?  I have googled by the way everything says something about Photoshop Extended which is old.  I have the newest photoshop CS6 I believe.

What do you mean?

Is the item grayed out in the menu?

If so: Is the document RGB? What is its bit depth?

Please post a screen captures showing what is grayed out on you. Photoshop gray out items the can not currently be user because of the active document current state.  If you have a document open you could be able to create a Frame automation timeline or video timeline.  If no document is open the Timeline will be a video timeline and you to add video assets in to it using the + icon on the right of the video timeline.
