PS CS6 animated GIF - "framerate" question

I have 35 layers (images) that i'd like to display one after the other in a stop-motion manner.
i have them all adjacent in one Video Group.
Somehow they all defaulted to be  05:00f  "wide" (duration) each.
How can i select all and then make them uniformly shorter in duration so they show approximately  a half second each.

i can grab each individual edge and make it more narrow, but it's tedious to get them all equal   and then
realigned to be adjacent.

advice?

You left out the main part? what are you using?
35 layers? could you explain this please.
If your using Adobe Premier or Cyberlink Power director or even windows moviemaker drop them all (images) onto the video timeline sort the sequence> choose your out put  aspect ratio say wide screen 16.9 or 4.3 and then save as a movie

willsherwood thankyou..

A gif is an animated image with several images over layered.
For timings with the movement in a gif if you used Photoshop to create it
to save time
please refer to part 5 Create frames for each individual layer
and then 7
Display the timing menu. Click on the arrow head under each frame to display the timing menu. Select the display time for each frame.

Each image is in a layer (35 layers)
No adjustments are needed (they're photos taken from a tripod)
what i'm missing in CS6 is how to adjust the equivalent in previous versions of PS:
"Display the timing menu. Click on the arrow head under each frame to display the timing menu. Select the display time for each frame."  <-- this instruction seems to be for previous versions.

It would seem that the only way to adjust the time duration in CS6 is by manually dragging the edge of the timeline frame.
the problem is:  getting all of these to be equally "wide" (duration),  and there are 35 of them.
i would like to select-all and set the duration of each/all

perhaps the root of the problem is that they ended up as a "video group" when i imported 35 jpegs to layers.

it seemed so easy in the days of ImageReady (before it was integrated into PS)
