I've never had to do it with a gif, but I'd think the process would be 
the same as any other image file. In the stack script:

put specialFolderPath("Resources") & slash & <filename.gif> into tPath
set the filename of img x to tPath

Put the gif file into the same folder with your stack so it will work on 
the desktop as well as on mobile. SpecialFolderPath("Resources") points 
to the current stack folder on desktop. In a standalone, it points to a 
Resources folder that the standalone builder creates automatically for 
copied files.

In standalone settings -> copy files pane, add the gif file.

See if that works.
